The Moon's Node and Portable Stonehenge
In this photo of Portable Stonehenge, I lined up a window frame's shadow so that it fell across the two pegs on the inner circle representing the moon's nodes. The peg closest to the camera is the Moon peg, and it's showing Wednesday's position. At about the two o'clock position is the Sun peg. The peg in the center is a day marking peg that I use to keep track of when to move the Sun peg (twice every thirteen days).
Sometimes I think it would be fun to have a large version of this in our back yard or in a public plaza, but then I imagine that the markers for the day, moon and sun would get knocked over or be in the way. Maybe some day I'll get enough hooks that I could do a square version of this for a room and hang them along the upper corners of the walls.
