16th century flamboyant gothic Astrological Clock in the choir screen of the Cathedral of Chartres, France. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. The chancel screen includes, on the south side, an impressive astrological clock dating from the 16th century. It told not only the time but the day of the week, the month of the year, the time of sunrise and sunset, the phase of the moon and the current sign of the zodiac. Its inner works were partially destroyed in 1793. .
