DAYS OF THE MOON

The RED Dot Design Award Winner Astroscope displays the weekdays like they’ve never been shown before: related to the heavenly bodies that have been attributed to the various days since ancient times.

It’s the Sun and the Moon that divide our time into day and night and the twelve months of the year for everyone to feel and observe. However, the division into seven-day weeks does not follow any particular astronomical rhythm, but has more of a mythological background. The method most likely dates back to the Babylonians, who, like many other peoples, considered the number seven to be especially holy and connected with seven heavenly bodies, i.e., the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn. Just as most planets are named after Roman gods, most days of the week in both German and English take their corresponding names from Norse mythology. Throughout history, the allocation of the days of the week to celestial bodies has endured the test of time:

Monday, the Moon  ☽
Tuesday, Mars  ♂
Wednesday, Mercury  ☿
Thursday, Jupiter  ♃
Friday, Venus  ♀
Saturday, Saturn  ♄
Sunday, the Sun  ☉
