When you get up close, you can see just how amazing this little moonphase indicator really is. As we mentioned in our initial post, there are actually two discs: one that carries the moon, and one behind it that rotates once every 24 hours. The disc carrying the moon rotates as normal for a moonphase indication (though it’s more accurate than a standard moonphase, at one days’ error every 122.6 years). The moon is curved and terminates in a sharp edge, making it really pop against the backdrop (there are actually two moons, not one, even if they’re never visible at the same time, as is the case with virtually all moonphase discs). The sky disc is gold that’s been treated to create the vibrant blues, which vary from almost robins-egg to midnight. The gold stars are bright but not so much so as to compete with the moon.
