Celestial Mechanics Mark II
Mark II released 1st July 2013
Celestial Mechanics pays homage to all the men and women who have looked to the heavens and plotted the movements of celestial bodies. Their work leads directly to the great discoveries of our time - discoveries about the nature of space time, the origins of the universe and planets orbiting other stars.
Celestial Mechanics reveals the time through the position of planets in orbit around a central star. Starting from the star, the planets reveal seconds, minutes, hours, day of the week, day of the month and month. Hovering your mouse over the seconds, minutes and hours planets reveals the exact time. The larger hours and day of week planets cast shadows over their smaller, more distant neighbours.
