The Clock in Prague

One of my Calc students went to Prague to run a marathon (I guess she does NOT own a car?) with her mom... Here she is slowing down to let mom finish ahead of here..she's that kind of kid.  And then she thought about her old math teacher and took a picture of the  beautiful astronomical clock there.
 
Prague Astronomical Clock or Prague Orloj (Czech: Pražský orloj [praʒskiː orloi]) is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, at 50°5′13.23″N 14°25′15.30″E / 50.0870083°N 14.420917°E / 50.0870083; 14.420917. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the only one still working. (wikipedia)
