You are now in the highest tower of the castle. It is up here where the Taldish Observatory resides. The whole place
is cared for by Andrew Arostrod, our astronomer and astrologist. He can be found either with an eye in the telescope
or pouring over star charts. It is usually cold up here but Arostrod seems indifferent. You can find interesting tid bits of
useful information here, such as the phase of the moon and when Mercury is going retrograde. Useful information for
witches. Arostrod is from the Czech Republic and an expert on glass and lenses. He also makes a wonderful
tripe soup.


The next full moon will be April 11th at 1:08 A.M.

Sun enters Taurus on April 19th at 4:27 P.M.

Please note that times are in Central Standard Time. Be aware that Taldish Castle does not recognize Daylight Saving Time. If you do you Must add an hour to "spring ahead".
Taldish Castle lives by the sun, not the clock. In fact our clock happens to be a sundial.
