A relatively simple device, it is ideal for children or others learning about the Moon and its phases we see in the sky. Just turn the dial so the image of the moon matches what you see in the sky. The wheel can then tell you:

 

•   the name of the phase

•   the Moon's position in its orbit

•   the day of the lunar month

•   the Moon's approximate rise and set time

•   the time of day, or night that this phase is visible in the sky.
