Cosmic-Watch is not just a clock, it’s an astronomical instrument which visualizes the cycles of the Earth and the solar system, helping to understand how we measure and experience time over thousands of years.
The Cosmic Watch has 3 main modes.
To start from zero press on the logo icon at the top left-hand corner.The main modes are:
- WORLD CLOCK: Timekeeping
- ASTRONOMY: constellations and planets on your sky
- ASTROLOGY: a different kind of astral chart
The Clock mode is the default setting to use the Cosmic Watch as a desktop clock.
The Astronomy mode shows the constellations, the horizon, and the planet names. Use this mode to find the planets in your local sky. In combination with the time control, you can find out the time of rising, transit, and setting of the celestial bodies.
The Solar system mode is the clockwork of the Cosmic Watch. It stays centered on Earth. You can see the inner solar system.
Fast-forward time to see the planets moving and understand their apparent motion in the sky. This is the answer to the retrograde motion of planets!
