Grand Forks North Dakota USA Armillary Sphere Dial 282
A large brass and cast iron armillary dial with full equatorial and equinoctial colure rings, two tropic rings and Arctic and Antarctic circle rings. The sphere is tilted so the gnomon rod points to celestial north pole. On the gnomon is a nodus for casting the noon day shadow on a plate with an engraved analemma. The whole armillary is mounted simply on a short four-legged stand.
