Description

How did our ancestors tell the time at night? This reconstruction of a 500 year old stardial shows the time with the help of the North Star and the Big Dipper. You can even read it in the dark, using only your finger tips!
On the back of the dial you find a mariner’s astrolabe for measuring the height of the Sun, stars, and landmarks.
