Dear Friends,

I just audio recorded the insertion of the "leap second" time interval 
as it sounded on WWV at 5 MHz here in New Mexico.

You can this exciting moment at:

The leap second appears just before the top of the hour beep or in this 
case the first second of 2009.

Clear skies to all and I hope you are now all in sync with Astronomical
