The 00749 AcuRite Galileo Thermometer combines style and functionality and is a beautiful accent piece for a home or office. It features a frosted world map decoration and a wooden base. Galileo Galilei, the pioneer of modern astronomy and physics, (1564-1642), discovered that liquids change density as the temperature increases or decreases. Based on this principle, the colored spheres inside the Galileo thermometer with glass globe barometer have been precisely weighted so that they respond to temperature changes. When the temperature rises, the liquid inside becomes less dense and the colored spheres floating inside will sink towards the bottom. The lowest floating bulb indicates the temperature. A low liquid level indicates high pressure or fair weather and a high one specifies low pressure or inclement weather. The Galileo thermometer with barometer measure temperatures from 64 to 80 degrees.
The storm glass is hand-blown and accurately forecasts changes in the weather hours in advance.
