The repeating cycles of the Sun, Moon and stars have helped people tell time for thousands of years. Sunrise, sunset and noon; days, seasons and years – all come from space. Join Tacye Phillipson from the National Museum of Scotland to be introduced to some of the fascinating historical instruments used to measure the Earth’s daily rotation and annual orbit around the Sun, and find out whether they are they still relevant today. This event is free and no booking is required.
