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

Up here in Vancouver, the clock on our City Hall building apparently stopped. Looked like for about 2 hours or so as I use it quite often. And this could have been around the 10th. I didn't pay attention to the day..

Time is relative...

Magnetic north is in fact migrating. Link to NATGEO earth mag north migrating

It is so bad that they have been renaming airport runways, which are named for their orientation to magnetic north.

We may see a pole reversal in our lifetime.

Clocks are ok though. I have a solar /atomic watch called the mudman. The atomic part means it automatically sets itself to the atomic (cesium beam) clock in Boulder Colorado by radio.

You can hear the time tick on HF radio, AM is the mode. Frequencies are 2.5, 5, 10, 15 and 20 Mhz. The radio call is WWV. If you hear a male voice, you are hearing Boulder. If you hear a female voice, it is the Hawaiian station.

Canada has a similar radio station, CHU. CHU transmits 3 kW signals on 3330 and 14670 kHz, and a 10 kW signal on 7850 kHz

Wouldn't someone who's job is tied to a clock notice? Like TV stations, radio stations etc. Someone would have said something surely if thousands of radio/TV station clocks suddenly stopped?

For example a radio talk show clock stops, coast to coast lol, George Noory mentions it, all the listeners call in saying their clocks also stopped. I don't think anyone on ATS would have missed that eh?

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.

I think your friend found out you had an ats account and played a little prank on you. Word of advice, he said she said does not constitute as evidence.

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....




Ever seen a clock get stopped by an electrical storm? It starts blinking and starts back at 12:00....

Could it be coincidence, but my home watch estopped on 10th and my office's on 11th Jan, battery out!!

Thanks Op! Interesting stuff!
Snc.

What could stop a pendulum. And then restart it again? Think about it.

Nothing ever mysterious happens like that and I wish it would but nope,nada...Boring life marches on.

Grande Prairie, Alberta here. My power went out on the 10th when some idiot from PEI came around the corner too fast and hit the power pole!! That being said, my computer was acting funny on the evening of the 10, it slowed right down, wouldn't load web pages and explorer kept crashing (lap top, but I'm pretty sure that had something to do with the power failure). Same with my Ipod, it would stall in between songs all night long and crash. It's never done that before, so I'd say partial confirmation here. Something was definetly out of whack with my Ipod...

*clocks ok though, and I don't wear a watch.. no cell phone either..

Um, total confirmation on my part. I can't remember the exact time - it was most likely between midnight & 1am central time. I laid down for bed and was doing some final internet surfing on my iphone. All of the sudden I complely lost service & the time disappeared from my screen. I have AT&T service. It freaked me out because I'm always paranoid about stuff like that. I even thought of hopping on ATS to see if it happened to anyone else. Lol. Service came back after about 10 minutes and I just fell asleep and forgot about it until now. How odd.
The ONLY other time I've ever lost service was directly folowing the 5.6 Oklahoma earthquake a few months ago. We're about 30 miles from the epicenter. I chalked that up to the fact that everyone in the state was probably on their phone psycho calling loved ones and it over loaded the system or something. Hmmm . . .

You're right about that. But then again I dont know much about magnetic fields etc. and if that could cause such thing to happen

I dont keep track of time with clocks I even use hide function with the clock on my laptop, said this however I do know what day of the week it is at times. How I can discern this is whether or not certain people are at home, or if they are out late doing shopping (they have a fixed routine). I spend my time at home because of a peculiar turn of events which renders me able to do so

And several times I have gone to sleep and woken up a day ahead in time or I wake up and the same routine of said persons going shopping twice in one week when they attest they only went once.

It seams that since I have been intuitively studying the art of switching timelines (a quantum physics based technique of lucid dreaming/waking) that these occurences of gained time and missing time in between sleeps has increased over the last year

Hmm, the only thing here was i think i blew our circuit around then lol. Kinda reminds me of when i took a picture of Venus and it looked like it had a thing coming off the left side, then the next day zomeone made a post about Venus having an anomaly on the left side...

Im totally lying though, dont listen to it!!

Why would you immediately assume"magnetic field interruption"? A mechanical clock should run better without magnetic fields to interfere with fine moving metal parts; pendulum clocks rely on gravity.. Electrical clocks on batteries or A.C. ( wall socket power) Earths' magnetic field effects NONE of those..
Is public school "science" class really that bad???????????

i've got a cheap casio watch that keeps jumping 20 mins every so often..

i know there has been a few instances of that sort of thing here and there,, but no dead stops.. cool story though..

all the nay sayers can jog on anyway!

Oh lighten up, slow news day.

Let the new guy get some experience before flaming like that.

My Mudman watch is solar, so the battery never needs to be changed. Used to be after I changed the battery the seal was no good and soon the watch would be ruined from submersion. No more. This one I have had for years and years!

A quick visit to the NERC website shows that they decided not to continue with this trial.
Presumably, what they were doing before, they will continue to do.


Programs: Time Error Correction Elimination
UPDATE: The Operating Committee in December 2011 voted to not move forward with the TEC elimination field trial.
As an alternative, the committee requested an investigation of the root causes of fast time error and identification of solutions to those root causes.

Mine definitely didn't stop - my Coo coo would have told me. He pops out every hour and never mentioned a thing!

He did sound like he had a sore throat though!
