LONDON, Jan 9 : The year 2015 will be slightly longer after the Paris Observatory announced it was adding a leap second to clocks this summer.
On June 30, adding the leap second will mean that at 11:59:59pm on June 30 for one second clocks will read 11:59:60pm.
Atomic time is constant, but the Earth's rotation is gradually slowing down by around two thousandths of a second per day.
    "The Earth is slowing down a little bit," said Nick Stamatakos, the chief of Earth Orientation Parameters at the US Naval Observatory.
