A Light Show For the Ages

The famous Prague Astronomical Clock recently celebrated its 600th birthday by putting on quite possibly the coolest light show in history.  We found the video on Gizmodo and had to share it here.  Apparently, it took four months to create the show.

The clock is known as Prague Orloj and is mounted on the wall of the city hall in Old Town Square.  It dates back to the early 1400s and has over 20 functions, displaying things like the lunar phase, time of sunrise/sunset, and zodiac phase.

This is a can’t-miss video:
