      Thank you, Sandra. The area where I went hiking early last Saturday has a garden at its headquarters. The garden is still very much asleep, but this astrolabe was in the center as an ornament. While this is decorative, I read that astrolabes were used to calculate the angle of celestial bodies for astronomy and navigation. I think they have an intriguing look and moved around it until it was in silhouette. Have a great day.

        Beautiful job photographing an interesting subject! That’s exactly what I was wondering if it was functional or decorative after I googled it. Nice find Chris!
