This is the Foucault pendulum suspended from the ceiling of the UN building
on the banks of the East River in New York. I am only sorry I didn't go back 6 hours later, as it would have appeared to have changed its direction of rotation. What would have happened however would be that the earth would have rotated under it. Well worth a look if you're ever in the Big Apple.
