What time is it?



Source: United States Navy Atomic Clock


Annotation by josh : has a real time java clock that updates without reloading. It based off an atomic clock and is usually acurate to a small (0.3-0.7) fraction of a second, depending on internet speed. It is a service provided by the boulder colorado section of National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO) time department. about


Annotation by strick :
This page at W3 has more clocks, and links to network time pages.

Here is the correct Yahoo Science/Measurements_and_Units/Time/ link; W3 had it wrong.

And the Clock of the Long Now is a worthy project for the next 10000 years, and Danny Hillis's Millenium Clock essay is worth reading!
