An HISTORIC MOMENT in time will occur at 8:02pm on February 20 this year. 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! Something that will never happen again!
As the clock ticks over from 8:01pm 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 is an event that has only happened once before. 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. It occurred at 10:01am on January 10, 1001; or, 10:01, 10/01, 1001. Because the clock only goes to 24:00, it is an event that will never occur again.
