I would rather presume that the official time changed at 2am on the 
30th, as previously reported, and that the "solemn adjustments" that 
occured at other times were merely ceremonial, and therefore performed 
at more practical times than 2am. (Of course this is just a presumption, 
which should be confirmed by official sources.)
