Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to a device for simulating the apparent motions of the planets of the solar system including those of the moon and sun. The invention concerns a mechanical device that enables an individual who is a non-expert in astronomy to simulate, in three-dimensional space, the apparent motions of the planets of the solar system and to define their directions respective to a given moment in time and for a given location. This is a simplified orrery that neither requires a darkened room nor qualified personnel for operating it. The device, supported by a base (10) that can be oriented according to the geographical north from the location of observation, comprises, in essence, a terrestrial globe (1), a wind rose (2) and a zodiac (3). The device can be adjusted so that the pin (5) carrying the terrestrial globe (1) and the axis of the device are parallel to the axis of rotation of the earth, and that the wind rose (2) is oriented according to the four cardinal points from the location of observation. The elements (24) representing the planets carried by the zodiac (3) give the directions of the planets as they can be observed in our celestial environment and make it possible to simulate their respective apparent motion.
(FR) Dispositif pour simuler les mouvements apparents des planètes du système solaire, y compris ceux de la Lune et du Soleil. L'invention concerne un dispositif mécanique permettant à une personne profane en astronomie, de simuler dans l'espace à trois dimensions, les mouvements apparents des planètes du système solaire, et de définir leurs directions respectives à un instant donné et pour un lieu donné. C'est un planétarium simplifié qui ne nécessite pas de salle obscure, ni de personnel qualifié pour son fonctionnement. Le dispositif, porté par un socle (10) orientable selon le nord géographique du lieu d'observation, comprend pour l'essentiel un globe terrestre (1), une rosé des vent (2) et un zodiaque (3). Le dispositif est réglable de façon à ce que l'axe (5) portant le globe terrestre (1) et l'axe du dispositif soit parallèles à l'axe de rotation de la Terre, et que la rosé des vents (2) soit orientée selon les quatre points cardinaux du lieu d'observation. Ainsi, les fiches (24) représentant les planètes portées par le zodiaque (3), donnent, les directions des planètes telles qu'elles sont observables dans notre environnement céleste et permettent de simuler leur mouvement apparent respectif.
