Item # GL052
 
Bronze Armillary Dial.
 
 
 
Early man, looking at the heavens, believed the stars were
fixed to the inside surface of a rotating sphere.

Copernicus gave his name to the theory of an Earth-centered universe,
 and the Vatican propagated his belief by threatening to burn
science heretics at the stake for stating otherwise.

We now know that we live on the fringe of a nearly
 infinite and ever expanding universe.

Armillary dials have the earth positioned inside a mesh of bronze hoops, symbolizing the course of the planets as known at the time.

The course of the sun is shown by a wide band called the ecliptic circle.
