Caption: Astronomical Clock, Prague, Czech Republic. This astronomical dial dates back to 1410 and displays three different sets of time; central European time, old Bohemian time and Babylonian time. It charts the positions of the Sun and planets around the Earth as medieval astronomers saw it. The movement of the Sun and Moon through the signs of the zodiac is also displayed. This is one of two dials, the other being a calendar dial showing the date.
