At 3 seconds after 1:02 AM tonight it will be 01:02:03 04/05/06

Pretty interesting. It won't happen like that (six sequential numbers starting with 1) again for another century. I'm not sure if I'll be awake to see it this time and I definitely won't be around to see it next time. :-) Oh well.

Does anyone know the mathematical odds of this — six digits in a row in time? Actually, something similar happened at 2 seconds after 12:01 AM last year on March 4. It was 00:01:02 03/04/05 (in military time).

Anyway, I figured other number buffs like me might get a kick out of this.
