Time Phenomenon

At 12:34 and 56 seconds on the 7th of August this year, the time and date is 12:34:56 07/08/09.

That is 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 in order in a freak of numbers.

For Americans that tend to write the month then the day, this same phenomenon happened around a month ago on the 8th July.

In 80 years time for those of us around, the same thing will happen in 2090 with the added zero on the end.

Just a bizarre combination of time and numbers.

@caroline: I didn't see anything about this till this morning and thought it pretty cool. I recall one for 12:34 and 56 secs on 7/8/90 when I lived in the UK and I guess that one is even neater.

@glennis: Sadly I read about it and didn't notice. But I was still taken by the numeric nicety of the pattern.
