    Venus, Mercury, and Moon

    Explanation: Earlier this month, Venus and Mercury climbed into the western twilight, entertaining skygazers around planet Earth in a lovely conjunction of evening stars. Combining 8 images spanning April 4 through April 15, this composite tracks their progress through skies above Portsmouth, UK. Each individual image was captured at 19:50 UT. The sequential path for both bright planets begins low and to the left. But while Venus continues to swing away from the setting Sun, moving higher above the western horizon, Mercury first rises then falls. Its highest point is from the image taken on April 11. Of course on April 15, Venus and Mercury were joined by a young crescent Moon.

    The Emotion Lab, an industrial design studio, has created a new timepiece with the phases of the moon.

    [Expert from their website below]

    Moonwatch

    The moon has been a guide and object of admiration and mysticism during thousands of years. Agriculture, fertility, tidal patterns, human behaviour and many other activities have been linked to the different moon phases.

    Moonwatch has been designed to establish a relationship between the moon cycle and a person’s emotional states. It’s a new concept of time based on nature which invites people to reflect upon and gain a closer understanding of their mood and daily life on earth.

    La luna nos sirve de guía, y es objeto de admiración y misticismo desde cientos de años. La agricultura, la pesca, la fertilidad, la marea y muchas otras actividades han vinculado sus procesos al ciclo lunar. Este diseño centra su atención en la relación que se establece entre el ciclo lunar y los estados emocionales de las personas.

    Moonwatch promueve un nuevo concepto de tiempo basado en la naturaleza, invitando a la reflexión de nuestros estados de ánimo y sus repercusiones en la vida cotidiana.
