Turn back your clocks this weekend...

Official U.S. Time -- -- This website is public service cooperatively provided by the two time agencies of the United States: the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the United States Naval Observatory. Readings from the clocks of these two agencies contribute to world time, called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The time maintained by both agencies should never differ by more than 0.0000001 seconds from UTC. The web site is intended as a time-of-day service only and should not be used to measure frequency or time interval, nor should it be used to establish traceability to NIST or the USNO. The site also features links to other interesting time-related websites, including a link to an exhibit about Daylight Savings Time, which begins at 2 a.m. this Sunday, March 8.
