THE ARMILLARY SPHERE

Until the year 1600, the armillary sphere was an astronomical instrument widely used to determine coordinates. The armillary has enjoyed great importance throughout history, since it was one of the first mechanical instruments in history and marked the beginning of a new era for astronomy in history.

As is well known, the name armillary sphere comes from the Latin word armilla, which means circle and represents the different circles that make up the armillary spheres.

It first began to be used in classical Greece and demonstrates the apparent movement of the sun over the earth, showing the change of months and years across the planet.

Meaning of the armillary sphere

The meaning of the armillary sphere is given because it is formed by copper rings, which represent the essential celestial circles. This instrument was invented by a Greek astronomer, and was used until the 17th century, enjoying great prestige during that time.

If we look at the shape of the armillary sphere, inside it we can see the planet Earth, divided into rings, representing the horizontal plane of the place and the meridian circle. In addition, there are also circles that serve as the celestial equator and ecliptic.

It comes in a beautiful wooden case and comes in three formats: Keychain, pendant or loop.
