Solar Motion Disk

Anahita Sidhwa shares her passion for astronomy in her interview. This solar motion disks a little cardboard piece she uses to teach astronomy to her students. It shows very nicely what happens at the equinoxes and solstices from our perspective on Earth. Equinoxes and solstices are also an integral part of the Zoroastrian calendar and main celebrations such as Nowruz.
