At dawn, the stars and galaxies are formed. 12 noon is 7.5 billion years ago. At 6pm the solar system is formed. At 8pm the first life on Earth appears. At 10:30 pm there are the first vertebrates on land. At around 11:40pm the dinosaurs arrive, and they are gone again by about 11:55pm. At about 11:59pm and 50 seconds, are the first human ancestors. Then at midnight is the Industrial Revolution (modern age).
