The Cosmic Calendar is a method to visualize the chronology of the universe , scaling its current age of In this visualization, the Big Bang took place at the beginning of January 1 at midnight, and the current moment maps onto the end of December 31 just before midnight. The Cosmic Calendar shows the time-scale relationship of the universe and all events on Earth as plotted along a single month, day, year. On this scale, one second corresponds to years; a minute is about 26, years; an hour is 1.
