Spy on your neighbor! Well your solar system neighbor. This clock will calculate the position of Mars in the heavens and display it on a zodiac constellation chart. It will also display the distance to Mars.
I have been fascinated with the planets since I was young. And Mars looks to be the first planet we will send people to. This project was really fun to work out how to calculate the position of Mars, find the constellation it is in, and display it. It is fun to track Mars through the constellations and the distance gives you an idea of how big Mars will look in the sky.
You can change what information is displayed on the clock display. You can choose between Time, Date, Distance to Mars, or you can set it to cycle through each of these continually.
The clock will need a standard phone charger adapter or USB cable for power (not included).
