The astronomical clock in Old Square has been keeping time since 1410, and is still accurate today. It shows the revolutions of the Sun, moon, and stars, and it is divided into red and blue halves representing day and night. In 1490, a calendar dial was added to the clock under the astrolabe on the clock face. So if you're feeling rather adventurous, compare the clock time to the photo date and time (to the right of this caption box) and see what you get -- the best I could figure was that it was day time!
