Treebeard's Stumper
17 Jan 97

We're fast approaching a new century and a new millennium. But exactly when does the new millennium begin? Is it at midnight on January 1 of the year 2000, or a year later on January 1, 2001? This has been one of the most debated questions in the sci.astro astronomy discussion group on the Internet. My question is: Why is this a question? What's the argument?
