lunar picture frame

Now this looks fun.

If you like the Moon, that is.

From my Google Discover feed, I spotted an article over at Tom's Hardware entitled Raspberry Pi Moon Calendar Shows Lunar Cycle With e-Ink Display.

Effectively a digital picture frame for the Moon.

Broadly, that's rather clever using an e-ink display for very low power consumption so that the thing can run continuously and show the lunar phase constantly.

Reminds me of some of my past project ideas, like information displays at the observatory, local weather sensors at home, current astronomy-related circumstances like sunset, Moon rise, twilight end, etc.

The daily quote is neat as well.

The maker created this for his Mom. Isn't that sweet?
