Here, two things must be done. The first thing is to adjust the watch to the world's most standard time. Under the GMT clock there is the exact length of the British Foot, which is determined by the foot length of John who usurped Richard the Lion Heart and signed the Magna Carta. It is said that in the early thirteenth century, there was no uniform standard in Britain, which caused a lot of trouble for trade. So many ministerial meetings were held to discuss the matter, but there were different opinions and no unified standard was established. So John stepped on the ground angrily and pointed at the sunken footprints to solemnly announce to the ministers - "There is a foot, let it be the measure from this day forward." That is why foot is Foot in English. The second thing is to take a picture of yourself crossing two hemispheres on the first meridian. We decided that Dad would stand in line here. I took my daughter to visit the Observatory first. When we finished all the visits, Dad was still queuing in the cold wind. At first, I was worried about whether it would be 17 o'clock closing time, and staff would ask all tourists to leave, because foreigners still value the time to go to and from work. Unexpectedly, until we finished shooting at about 17:45, no one came to the end of the scene, and at this time there were many people behind us. So, I think that visitors are not allowed to re-enter at 16:30, but if they have already entered, they will still wait until all the people in the queue have taken photos before closing the door. It's very intimate. After an hour of queuing, it's finally our turn. It's just to see it - Benchu meridian, the dividing line of the eastern and Western hemispheres. The East and west sides of Benchu meridian are designated as the eastern meridian and the Western Meridian respectively, and the international zero. Point, where a time begins. Finally, I got a picture of two hemispheres with one foot - "Good morning to today with the right foot, goodbye to yesterday with the left foot. Nearby are the Maritime Museum and the Katie Sark. Tickets are not cheap, but London Pass is available. The "Katiesak" is the fastest sailing ship in the history of sailing in the world. It is called "Downwind Whisky" and represents the peak of sailing technology. It was built in Scotland in 1869 and has a history of 146 years.
The Royal Observatory of Greenwich, built in 1675, looks at the meridian. The East and west sides are thus separated. The clock in Figure 1 has a great beginning. It has a 24-hour walking clock, which represents the time "Greenwich Standard Time" commonly used in the world. The red ball on the roof in Figure 3 is said to have been inspired by Newton's red apple.
Visit Greenwich Observatory outside London. The observatory, built in 1675, is well-known because it is the foundation of modern astronomical navigation surveys: the primary meridian (zero meridian) from here divides the earth into the eastern and Western hemispheres, and the Greenwich Standard Time (WT) is the starting point of different time zones in the world. Its geographic height is at the Earth's average sea level, known as the Earth's level. Greenwich Observatory has made outstanding contributions to mankind for hundreds of years. Now it has retired gloriously as a museum. Its rich collection gives me a wonderful experience for this famous astronomy enthusiast. I did not reluctantly leave until the closure of the Observatory. How wonderful it feels to have both feet on the eastern and western hemispheres at the same time! See Harley's tomb. Halley served as an astronomical observatory here for 22 years until his death. The famous Halley comet was named after him. In addition to his great contribution to science, Halle also contributed to Newton's Principles from its completion to its publication and publication, laying the foundation for modern physics, mechanics, astronomy and philosophy. Instead of gaining any fame and fortune from it, he owed a debt for a long time before paying it off. Fortunately, history has not forgotten him, and he is respected by the world, including me. Looking up at the stars and exploring the universe, the astronomical ancestors, thank you for broadening our horizons for mankind! In the panoramic cinema of the Observatory, I saw astronomical movies, commented funny and humorous, and interacted with the audience from time to time. Laughter bursts were very interesting!

The Royal Greenwich Observatory (RGO), a comprehensive Observatory built by King Charles II in Greenwich, London, in 1675, laid the foundation stone on August 10, and the King created the Royal Astronomer's post (the first was John & Franstein) to serve as the observatory's director and "dedicated to the most sincere governance of the observatory. Concern about and strive to correct the catalogue of celestial motion and the position of stars so as to correctly determine longitude and make navigation a perfect art. The Observatory is located on a hill overlooking the Thames River in London at Greenwich Park.
Where the primary meridian passes. The ticket is a paper numbered bracelet. Standing on the ground with two legs and taking pictures on the first meridian is a must for every visitor. The meridian sign is copper. It is also engraved with measuring instruments and time-reporting devices in the houses at the end of every major city in the world, including Beijing. It's kind of like a science pavilion. So many primary and middle school students are guided by their teachers.
As a liberal arts student, junior high school has always been interested in world geography. Today, I am lucky to come to Benchu meridian and experience a wave of operations across the eastern and Western hemispheres. It can be said that it's very worth it! __________ The scenery is excellent too. My friends who come to London remember to punch in here! (human human heart-to-heart)
Everyone at the Royal Observatory of Greenwich must have learned that this is the starting point for the division of the world's time zones, and the time here is also the world's most standard time. Coming here, I feel really amazing, with an inexplicable sense of pride and pride. Observatory can be visited, the appearance is really very ancient, but there are many advanced equipment inside, we must see.
Greenwich Observatory is the most famous Observatory in the world. No one who has studied geography in middle school knows it. It was listed as a world cultural heritage by UNESCO in 1997. To come here, you have to take pictures on both sides of the primary meridian to show your superpower of stepping on the East meridian and West meridian dividing line at the same time.
