    The Dual Weather Station is an exciting combination of two super successful historical weather devices!

    Consisting of two glass cylinders on a beech wood base, it's an elegant and traditional way to predict the weather!

    Your Galileo thermometer uses five floating glass baubles to determine the temperature based on liquid density.

    Each bulb has a calibrated, weighted metal tag and the temperature is determined by reading the lowest floating bulb!

    The Storm Glass responds to atmospheric fluctuations, helping you to forecast the weather by observing the evolving crystal formations!

    A key to reading your Storm Glass:

    Clear liquid = Fair weather
    Murky Liquid = Rainy weather
    Crystals at the top = Thunderstorms
    Large flaky crystals = Cloudy skies, snow in winter
    Thread of crystals = Windy weather
    Assembled dimensions: 17.5cm x 14cm x 7cm

    Temperature range of Gallileo Thermometer: 16 - 32 degrees celsius

    Two Historical Devices In One!
     
    STORM GLASS
    Once used by seafarers to predict oncoming storms, the storm glass barometer came into general use in the early 1700s, and responds to atmospheric fluctuations to forecast the weather. Admiral Robert Fitzroy conducted a detailed study of this instrument between 1834 and 1836. He refined the chemical formulation and published observational guidelines on how to predict the weather, see instructions inside.
     
    GALILEO'S THERMOMETER
    In 1593, Galileo Galilei discovered that the density of liquids reacts predictably to changes in temperature. He invented a device that allowed temperature variations to be measured.
     
    HOW IT WORKS
    The sealed glass cylinder contains five floating glass bulbs. Each bulb has a calibrated, weighted metal tag.  The temperature is determined by the lowest floating bulb. When there is a bulb in the middle, the temperature should be read as between this degree and the lowest floating bulb.
    Temperature range: 16-32⁰C
