Leap geohash achievement

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Award yourself this achievement for geohashing on a leap day, or reaching the geohash on a leap second. This is a chance you will only get every four years, and then they'll cheat you for some!

Bonus points for leaping all the way, meeting a leap of leopards, or doing other leap related activities.

Double bonus points if this is your initial expedition and leap day becomes your Hashiversary.

[edit] Upcoming dates

While the dates of leap days are well known and quite predictable (unless some pope decides to cancel a few of them - but that happened only once in the past 2000 years anyway), leap seconds are only announced a few months before. See the wikipedia article for more information.

If there is a leap second upcoming, please add it here.


Please mind that to earn the achievement by geohashing on a leap second you need to be at the coordinates at the exact time of the leap second. This is not midnight unless you geohash at a place that runs on UTC, so better check your timezone first.
