Believe it or not but 8.02pm on February 20, 2002 will be an historic

moment in time.

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 and 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 which has only ever happened once before, and is something which

will

never be repeated.

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 - at 10.01am

on

January 10, 1001.

And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will

never happen again.
