Hands On A Clock Part 2 (Posted on 2009-04-10) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The hour, minute, and second hands of a clock with continuous sweeping can never be spaced at exactly 120 intervals. This was shown in Part 1

Find the exact time when these angles are as close as possible and the order of the hands are hour, minute, second in a clockwise fashion.

['As close as possible' means the sum of the individual deviations from 120 is minimized.]
