The Millenniumuhr can be very useful in many fields and can pose a truly interesting auxiliary tool for many professional groups - among others:
Historians Sailors Astronomers
Now some concrete examples of use will be shown.
By means of the Millenniumuhr it is possible to validate whether historical events are true or not. To validate something it is necessary that there are sufficient information. For example: If a certain date and the corresponding weekday is given, it is possible to authenticate whether the given weekday really fits the given date or not.
On this ancient Babylonian wedge writing platelet there is - among others - noticed that there occurred a full moon in Babylonia on Saturday, the 7th of November in the year 7 B.C. at 07.33am. (Source: Kalender und Chronologie, Prof. Heinz Zemanek, 3rd Edition, Page 89).
To verify this statement with the Millenniumuhr only the date (7.11.-7) and the time (7.33) have to be typed in. It is not necesary to choose the place Babylonia, since the phase of the moon is location-independent.
The yellow arrow in the moongraphic indicates the phase of the moon (cp.: picture). On this date he points exactly at the full moon!
The result is non-ambiguous:
The statement on the wedge writing platelet is minutely correct!
Everyone who wants to know at which time it will be bright enough to read the papers, to recognize the horizon, or to perform observations can make use of the possibility to choose different twilight-levels. As is generally known it becomes already bright before the sun rises. The different twilight-levels can be chosen by pressing the keys 1, 2, and 3.
Wherever one sojourns (in the mountains, by the sea), the times of the twilights are always quite precise!-whereas sun- and moonrises can often not be observed when they are not in sight on the horizon due to mountains, houses, or clouds.
Example : Twilight-levels in London on February, the 4th in the year 2100
Civil Twilight :At what time it is bright enough (too dark) to read the papers?
Nautical Twilight :Until what time can the horizon still be recognized resp. at what time will it be possible to see the horizon?
Astronomical Twilight :When will it be dark enough to observe stars of magnitude 5 with the naked eye?
