It will happen on 8/8 8:08 PM (20:08) Beijing time, which is equivalent to 8:08 AM New York time, or 5:08 AM California time.
For those of you in the US, how do you plan to watch this monumental ceremony? Will you watch it live or rebroadcast? Or perhaps on the internet? I think the earliness may be a bottleneck for watching it in real time.
