   World Timer Server [California]
World Time Server provides the most accurate current local times of any world clock on the Internet. It makes real time adjustments for Daylight Savings Time. No matter what time zone a country or city is located in, this site is your best resource for determining any time, anywhere.
   Today's Calendar and Clock Page
A very comprehensive listing of today's date and time according to more calendar systems than you've heard of before.
   The Aztec Calendar
There is not just one Aztec calendar, there are two more or less independent systems. One calendar, called the xiuhpohualli, has 365 days. It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons, and therefor might be called the agricultural year or the solar year. The other calendar has 260 days. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, it is called the tonalpohualli or, in English, the day-count.
   Local Times Around the World
This guide attempts to list all of the world's countries, and many of its islands, with a pointer to the local time in the region.
   Earth Calendar

   World Time Zone
Here you can get the current local time for every country in the world, with adjustments for daylight savings time where it is used.
   Atomic Time Keeping
The spinning Earth gives our most basic measurement of time - the day - and for thousands of years it was our most stable timekeeper. However, the quartz and atomic clocks invented during the 1930s and 1950s are even better timekeepers which show that the Earth does not rotate steadily but wobbles! NPL built the world's first accurate caesium atomic clock in 1955 and paved the way for a new and better definition of the second based on the caesium 133 atom.
   U.S. Scientists Create World's Most Precise Clock [July 12, 2001]
The new all-optical atomic clock measures the shortest intervals of time ever recorded. In fact, those intervals are 100,000 times shorter than those observed by the best current clocks.
   NIST Time
Returns the current GMT time from NIST.
   The Official U.S. Time [Current Eastern Time] [Current Pacific Time]
This public service is cooperatively provided by the two time agencies of United States: a Department of Commerce agency, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and its military counterpart, the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO). Readings from the clocks of these agencies contribute to world time, called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The time maintained by both agencies should never differ by more than 0.000 0001 seconds from UTC (see recent comparisons).
