Following a recent run of the shortest days ever recorded by atomic clocks, Earth’s rotational speed may be slowing.

In the past few years, Earth’s spin speeded up. It was at its swiftest in June 2022, which included the shortest-ever days as measured by atomic clocks.

Since then, however, the trend has reversed. In 2023, for the first time in seven years, the average length of day became longer. Meanwhile, the latest predictions suggest this slowdown may continue into 2025.

2020: Earth in a Hurry
We revealed that the year 2020 had included the 28 shortest days since the invention of the atomic clock.

2021: On Course for a Negative Leap Second?
Earth’s acceleration raised the possibility of our clocks having to skip a second to keep up.

2022: New Record for Shortest Day
In June 2022, Earth beat its record for the shortest day of the atomic clock era.

Review: Earth Speeds Up

In general, Earth’s rotational speed is decreasing: around 100 million years ago, a day on Earth was only 23 hours long. This gradual slowdown is caused by the gravitational pull of the Moon acting as a gentle brake on Earth’s spin.

However, during the past decade, Earth speeded up. Here at timeanddate, we kept a close eye on this development—and its consequences.

This year’s Lei Queen Tehina Ka’ena Kahikina and her court will reign over the festivities, which include the Lei Contest Exhibit that will showcase some of the world’s most exquisite handcrafted lei in a variety of materials, colors, and styles. 

The public can experience the exhibit from 1 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., followed by the judging of the lei and the official opening of the exhibit by the Lei Court. 

Anyone interested in entering fresh flower lei for the contest must submit between 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Lei Receiving Booth on the day of the event. 

The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association will also be performing from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lei Exhibit Area, with Hawaiian artisans will share their talents and skills in the nearby Kulana Lei village.
