You probably didn’t notice but this past weekend was one second longer than usual. On Saturday, the International Atomic Time was adjusted to compensate for gradual changes in the Earth’s rotation.
The most recent leap second before Saturday occurred on New Year’s Eve on 2008.
According to livescience.com, the practice of adding a leap second from time to time (no pun intended) started in 1972. Since then, 24 leap seconds have been added, according to timeanddate.com.
