WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Google Earth Clock

World clocks are ten a penny online, but we ain’t seen one like this before.

At www.googleearthclock.cwandt.com you’ll get to see the time represented by images from Google Earth that look a bit like the numbers on a digital clock face.

Who would think that a snaking river perfectly traces the shape of the number five, or that a ploughed field would be the perfect number one?

The images update regularly (like clockwork, you might say) and you’ll find yourself watching the hours, minutes and seconds ticking by, just to see what pops up next.

If you fancy seeing where each feature is, you can click and drag to explore the map further and you might even spot somewhere you know.

They’re on the lookout for more number-like places, so if you can think of something suitable, drop them a line.

Clock-watching has never been so captivating – perfect for a Friday.
