Yes folks we have an extra second to add to our lives but we will not notice it and its set to be a mini Y2-K.
This has all to do with the Atomic clock to keep things in line around the world but as mentioned nobody will notice it,unless you are die hard clockwatcher perhaps. Wait a sec I hear you say ??

A “leap second” will be added on June 30 at midnight Coordinated Universal Time (or 8 p.m. EDT). Leap seconds are added occasionally to help keep the atomic clock synced up with the earth’s rotation.
“The earth’s spin isn’t uniform, it’s not constant,” Nick Stamatakos, the chief of earth orientation parameters at the United States Naval Observatory, told USA TODAY Network.
Because of the earth’s inconsistent speed, scientists in the 1950s created an atomic clock to keep precise track of time. However, as the earth’s rotation sped up and slowed down, the atomic clock continued steadily ahead and the two time indicators grew farther apart.
Enjoy the lie in folks.
