clocks stopped all over the world, possible magnetic field interruption?

A couple of days ago my friend was telling me that he heard on a radio station that something happened to all of the clocks around the world or some kind of magnetic field interruption at midnight Jan 10th 2012. I'm not sure if these would correlate in anyway, but he didn't get to hear all of the story due to his daughter being loud in the background. He said whoever was talking on the radio was saying to all those who doubt anything will happen in 2012 , that they might want to think twice because this occurrence was a precursor to bigger things occurring. I don't know if he just misheard, but i was wondering if anyone else could confirm something happening? He sticks to his guns about his story.

Nope. Mine didn't stop.

Northwest United States here. Four clocks, two electronic, two mechanical...none stopped.

Nor do any of my electronics show any sign of any interruption, such as my computer, cable box, etc...

Southern U.S. All clocks working as they should be. No time lost...no blinking digitals.

Do you not think this would have made some other news source, than a vague second hand story of a radio caller.

Southern California checking in and pleased to announce, on time! No interruption here.

Midwest United States. I use my phone for a clock...keeps the time thing simple, but nothing happened there.

Perhaps the radio talker was just speculating on some scientific news, like a possible electromagnetic fluctuation whose affects would include timepiece interference?

Actually, My clocks DID stop!


Somewhere between "Tick" and "Tock"....

But they started right back up again, after about a picosecond....

Would you not have to have been awake and looking at your clock to have noticed that it stopped. If you were not looking at it, but it had stopped, at some point it started again. You would have not noticed it if it had only stopped for a minute or two.
Besides how can a clock be stopped by a magnetic field interruption? Maybe a huge pendulum would....

I think what he may have heard is...tons of website just enter January 10 2012


Doomsday Clock moves to five minutes to midnight

10 January 2012 It is five minutes to midnight.

Hey guys I don't think clocks stopping is the exact problem here. Recently around the date you mentioned, both my computer clocks and my friends as well as the phone clocks and the clock at work started doing strange things. One counted backwards for a short period of time, the others put themselves out of sync by a variation of hours. Of course this could purely be down to changes in the systems that run the clocks and perhaps an auto update feature on the clock at work that made it correct itself by going backwards, (electronic target clock btw)

still i would like to hear more about what had been going on!

We have a winner!
I had forgotten about that.

Well, not that I documented it, but my digital clock had stopped shortly.

From what i remember it wasn't too off of the time either.

The date sounds right too, so confirmation here. Seattle.

Edit to add that the clock is just a simple digital clock, but I'll have to ask the roomies if they had to reset the microwave or oven.

Megalopolis here .... (DC/B'More/Philly/NYC/Boston) Nothing here stopped. Nothing with my relatives. No sign of an interruption. No sign of lost time. Everything is the same and running normally.

Yes you can call mine conformation of err, clock anomalies... Bristol, UK

Nope...none here either in the NW US. They did however seem to stop..at least most of them on the 7th...when the power went out....

my clock stopped when i closed my eyes at 10pm , when i woke up sure enough it jumped to 6am on its own

My question would be, how could we even know if our clocks stopped, when EVERY clock stopped?

Midnight who's time? Or midnight for every one in their local time zone?

I do know that clocks like your alarm clocks in the US count time by the 60Hz frequency of AC electricity here. Most computer clocks and cell phones use network time server like the US Navy's Atomic Clock to keep time accurate. However, this year, there was an article about it, the US was going to experiment with transmitting electricity at different frequencies than 60Hz or 60 cycles per second. Faster and slower, the clocks using crystal ossilators that count the frequency on the AC electricity will be fast or slow by up to 20 minutes due to these tests. I will try to find the article for you.

Testing causing clock errors


WASHINGTON – A yearlong experiment with the nation's electric grid could mess up traffic lights, security systems and some computers — and make plug-in clocks and appliances like programmable coffeemakers run up to 20 minutes fast.



Here is an Explanation of the transmission frequencies and how they are different around the world.
