The Astronomical Clock of Clock Court (larger) was made for Henry VIII in 1540 by Nicholas Oursian, Devisor of the King’s Horologies. “The clock shows the hour, month, day, number of days since the beginning of the year, and the phases of the moon. The sun revolves around the earth as the clock was designed before the discoveries of Galileo and Copernicus.” - Hampton Court Palace guidebook, Simon Thurley (1996, p. 44) // sircle: (12keys)
