A modern hemisphaerium in Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul, South Korea. 3734′43″N 12658′38″E  /  37.578611 , 126.977222 The tip of the pointer serves as the nodus; the height of the nodus-shadow within the bowl gives the time of the year.

Since the picture was taken on 24 November, the sun is low in the sky, and the nodus-shadow higher in the bowl.
