2010 01 15

Notification from email

For several years I have posted on how the winter solstice on 21-12-2012 was going to happen at 11:11 according to the Naval Observatory. Now the Naval Observatory has apparently changed it's calculations so that the winter solstice happens at 11:12.

See for yourself: http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/EarthSeasons.php

2012 --------------- 2012
Perihelion Jan 5 01 Equinoxes Mar 20 05 14 Sept 22 14 49
Aphelion July 5 04 Solstices June 20 23 09 Dec 21 11 12

Given that the Naval Observatory is probably the most precise observatory in the world I find this highly unusual. A minutes change is huge! What's going on here?
