Click the region you live in or want to know about and the next page gives you the official time there and shows you where the sun is shining in the world and where it's dark.

Use it to set your clocks or to check what times in your time zone compare to times outside of your time zone. That's handy when you need to contact a business outside of your time zone. Unfortunately, you can't use it to paint your carpet though, it doesn't work that way. If you click the link for Time Exhibits, you'll find links to sites featuring the history of timekeeping, calendars through the ages, and other time-related content.

It's not as boring as it sounds!
