Prague Astronomical Clock

Built in the 1400's, the German clock in Prague is the third oldest astronomical clock in the world that is still working. The sphere or clock dial shows the most important astronomical events...the movement of the sun circling the earth, phases of the moon, the equinoxes, the seasons, the days, and the zodiac. The only thing that is not easy to read on this clock is the time.
