It seems like it was just yesterday that I was living in Switzerland. In fact it's been over 2.5 years. It's been a good 1.5 years since our vacation back to Switzerland in fact. I'm crossing my fingers for the next trip.

Bern Clock

This is the famous Bern Astrological Zytglogge tower clock. The Zytglogge tower is an astronomical clock from the 16th century. The hand symbol displays the position of the sun (left is east, top is south, right is west), while a gold-and-black ball shows the phase of the moon. - The angle between these two marks the lunar phase. Impressive at that.

Click on the link to see a photo from the 1900's of the clock. The area still looks the same today!
