A Timestamp represents a point in time independent of any time zone or calendar, represented as seconds and fractions of seconds at nanosecond resolution in UTC Epoch time.

It is encoded using the Proleptic Gregorian Calendar which extends the Gregorian calendar backwards to year one. It is encoded assuming all minutes are 60 seconds long, i.e. leap seconds are "smeared" so that no leap second table is needed for interpretation. Range is from 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z to 9999-12-31T23:59:59.999999999Z.






  • new Timestamp(seconds: number, nanoseconds: number): Timestamp
  • Creates a new timestamp.


    • seconds: number

      The number of seconds of UTC time since Unix epoch 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. Must be from 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z to 9999-12-31T23:59:59Z inclusive.

    • nanoseconds: number

      The non-negative fractions of a second at nanosecond resolution. Negative second values with fractions must still have non-negative nanoseconds values that count forward in time. Must be from 0 to 999,999,999 inclusive.

    Returns Timestamp
