The 600 Year Old Astrological Clock in Prague


The Prague Orloj, or Prague Astrological Clock dates back to 1410
which means it just turned 600 years old
this is a must see tourist attraction in Prague
and as a tourist who has seen it, I must say, it's impressive
actually, the entire city of Prague is impressive
as is the video above showing the celebration of the clock's 600th birthday
very impressive

here is a picture I snapped of the clock tower when I visited Prague in 2008

SHADOW IN THE CLOUDS: A rare optic sight, the “Brocken spectre,” which occurs when a person stands at a higher altitude in the mountains and sees his shadow cast on a cloud at a lower altitude, was observed in the Tatra Mountains in Zakopane, Poland, Thursday.
