Spinning light clocks are employed to conduct the visualization of spin 1/N (where N is a positive integer). An object with spin 1/N looks same if it is turned round revolutions of an integer number of N (N?360 degrees). For a spinning clock, the two mirrors rotate around a common point that is between them. There are two types of spinning light clocks: one is A - type; the other B - type. For an A - type spinning light clock, the distances between the common point (around which the two mirrors rotate) are same, and the distances are different for a B - type spinning light clock. The general method to visualize spin 1/N is provided, and specific examples to visualize spin 1/2 and spin 1/3 are given.
