Got this off the Steppes list.


Believe it or not, 8:02pm on February 20 this year will be a historic moment
in time.

It will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks or the ringing of bells,
but at that precise time, on that specific date, something will happen which
has not occurred for 1,001 years, and will never happen again.

As the clock hits 8.02pm on Wednesday, February 20, time will, for sixty
seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002, 2002, or to be more
precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.

This historic event will never have the same poignancy as the 11th hour of
the 11th day of the 11th month which marks Armistice Day, but it has only
happened once before, and will never happen again.

The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long
before the days of the digital watch and the 24-hour clock - at 10:01am on
January 10, 1001.

And because the clock only goes up to 23:59, it is something that will never
happen again.
