Cheer up, Spring is coming…

…according to our inimitable Blanford Clock. Little-known fact: although also an example of William Blanford’s fine craftsmanship, this view of the constellations embodies a scientific breakthrough of the early 20th century. It solved the heretofore unsolvable *equation of time*, how to make an isolated clock keep pace with apparent solar time. Please don’t ask us how. 

This 115-year old masterpiece can be seen on the first floor of the Pierce Center, 20 E. Downer, 60505. Wednesdays-Saturdays, Noon-4pm.
