Mystic Seaport, Mystic CT

17 March 2016

The Seaport has on exhibit a display concerning the calculation of longitude by means of accurate time keeping.  Sadly when I got into the building where the display was I found out that photography of the items on display was strictly prohibited.  The clock works are on loan from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich England and no photos was a condition of the loan.   The exhibit closes on the 28 of March so time is limited if you want to see the exquisite craftsmanship of the devices.
