Astronomical clock

Lyon, France

Records mention this clock in the late 14th Century. Constructed at a time when the sun was believed to orbit the earth, this clock measured a range of astronomical parameters. It is located in the Chapel of the Virgin, part of the complex of the Basilica of Fourviere in Lyon.
