What Is an Astronomical Clock and How Does It Work?
All the time in the world
The clock is not only special because of its history. Apart from telling what time of the day it is, reading it can also tell you what day of the month and year it is! The clock’s elaborate mechanism also measures three different types of time: central Europe time, old Czech Republic time, and Babylonian time. The latter might sound like something we made up, but it’s totally real. Babylonian time (AKA Planetary hours) is no longer in use but the ancient Babylonians developed it based on planetary movement to tell time. All those different time measures are possible thanks to the astronomical dial in the center of the clock. This dial is made of an ancient navigation tool called an astrolabe, which id pointed at the north pole.
Last of its kind
The clock can also tell you the locations of different astronomical bodies and which astrological sign is at the top of the zodiac at the moment. It is the last and only astronomical clock in the world to provide all this incredible information.
