At 8:02 p.m. today, Wednesday, February 20th, 2002, time will (for sixty seconds only) be a perfect palindrome, since the clocks will read: 20:02, 20/02, 2002.

This has only happened once before at 10:01 a.m. on January 10, 1001. Because clocks only go up to 23.59, it’s something that will never happen again.
