Just wondering if anyone else has noticed that the winter solstice of 2012 is now said to occur on Dec. 21 at 11:12 UT, according to the Naval Oceanography Portal?

Years ago I remember looking at that very site and seeing the time listed as 11:11, and thinking "that's weird" because of that whole 11:11 phenomenon. Today, someone reminds me of 2012 so I do a search and find a ton of blog posts about Dec. 2012 and 11:11, so I know I'm not the only one who saw it! But when I find the Navy site above, the official time is different.

Is it normal for the times of things like solstices and equinoxes to be adjusted like that? If it is, then never mind. But if it's not, then that's just odd.

The Mayan calendar moves in cycles with the last cycle ending in December 2012. This has often been interpreted as the world will end on 21 December 2012, at 11:11 UTC.



The Mayan calendar completes its current “Great Cycle” of the Long Count on the 13th baktun, on 13.0.0.0.0. Using the most common conversion to our modern calendar (the Gregorian calendar) the end of the “Great Cycle” corresponds to 11:11 Universal Time (UTC), December 21, 2012, hence the myriad of doomsday prophecies surrounding this date.

Timeanddate.com, - How does the Mayan Calendar work?

This date and "11:11 UTC" have surrounded the Mayan calendar forever. The end of the "Great Cycle" could not be changed so change what you could. Funny, nobody told timeanddate.com to update their website!

Moving the date is to keep us from wondering about things too much. The "big ideas" that might wake us up. And, "Don't ask about seeing '11:11' every time you turn around, either!"

A long dead thread rises!

Equinoxes and solstices occur when they do. Not always on the same date, and not at the same time.

I've referenced this thread a couple times so figured... hey, why not!

They are adjusted and they do wander over a 4 (??) day period (maybe it is three).

But to change that particular one (Winter Solstice 2012) to the next second? Sure enough, Wikipedia shows it as "11:12" as do most other sources. Except timeanddate.com. Which is odd because that is their reason to exist--get the right date and time.

And hey, a conspiracy site, conversation starter, and no "doom porn" as the date, like my deadlines, have flown past. I like the whooshing they make as they fly by! (Douglas Adams misappropriation)

They are not adjusted. They can't be. They are actual events, they are not "scheduled."

The thing is, our clocks and calendars do not match the actual motions of the Earth so Equinoxes and Solstices don't match our clocks and calendars.

I just read it is points along the ecliptic that are measured. Then interpolated to time. OK.

I was hoping for some of TPTB dastardly scheming new "time lines" explaining Manatee Effects (ME) and the 11:11 phenomena.

Dang, that is no fun!



A big nvm then.
