    Re: NIST website time accuracy
    From: Gary LaPook

    Now this is interesting. If you go to the Navy celestial navigation website:

    http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/cel-nav-data


    it displays the time from the USNO master clock. If you also have open the NIST site you can compare the two times. When you first go the the Navy site the two times are in agreement but after a short while the USNO master clock time runs slow, it is 39 seconds slow right now on my computer. If I refresh the Navy site the time is again in synchronization.

    Curiouser and curiouser.
