You can read the complet description with pictures in our web www. It can be used to aid to explain several facts about the Sun- Earth - Moon system.Seasons of the year: The seasons result from the Earth's axis of rotation being tilted with respect to its orbital plane by an angle of approximately 23.5 degrees. This causes that one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun than the other. If you rotate the mechanism holding the knob next to the pointer you can see that the Earth maintains its orientation as it orbits around the Sun. If you set the mechanism approx. On 21 of June, the tilt directs to the Sun, so it is summer in the northern hemisphere and winter in the southern hemisphere.
If you continue rotating counterclockwise direction you will see how the miniature Earthglobe maintains its orientation according to the seasons and month printed in the dial. Eclipse seasons: An eclipse season is one of only two periods during a year when eclipses can occur, due to the orbital inclination of the Moon. In this planetarium the Moon orbit is represented with a ring that have engraved both the ascending (north) node and the descending (south) node. When the nodes are aligned in the same line of the Earth and the Sun, eclipses can occur if in this period the Moon is in new moon (solar eclipse) or in full moon (lunar eclipse).
You can see how this possibility occurs by turning the pointer. This ring rotates in the correct ratio of 18,6 years turn. The direction of the movement is retrograde respect of the Moon- Earth movement around the Sun. The advance of the Lunar Apogee: The lower base with the bronze pointer demonstrates the eccentricity of the Moon orbit.
The pointer displays the point of the apogee and it is easy to see its movement in the zodiac ring (ecliptic plane) that surrounds the Earth. When the pointer is aligned between the Earth and the Sun and a node determines the possibility of an annular eclipse but if it is in the other side, the eclipses will be total. When the pointer is opposite to the Sun it is possible to occur a supermoon in a full moon. This pointer moves in practically the correct ratio. It rotates in advance one turn in approx.
This is probably one of the smallest full working planetariums of the world with this features. All this is condensed in a 8 cm diameter round table and 4,5 cm approx in height. It fits anywhere by its exceptional size and it is an authentic eyecatching. If a special collector item is what you are after, this is a must.
The mechanism is made of solid brass. Apogee pointer and axis are in bronze. Sun is in goldplated stainless steel. All the gears are made in a manual vertical milling machine with a manual indexing head. It is designed to last without practically any mechanical maintenance.The brass is polished without any coat. Over time it acquires a museum like look. The table is made of solid oak or sapelly wood, hand turned and stained in different tones or varnished in its natural tone. It has a steel ballast inside to assure stability when turning the mechanism. It is protected with several coats of varnish.
The Earth globe is hand painted with high detail including the real polar ices. It is 8mm in diameter. It is carefully made in ABS by high quality 3d printing procedure and hand finished. The dial is a high quality print with our original design that depicts the months, the seasons of the year and the zodiac.
