Armillary Spheres are models of the celestial sphere based on the Ptolemy theory of the universe with the earth being stationary at the centre. The celestial sphere is imagined as a sphere with the stars fixed onto its interior and the earth at its centre. Although we now know this to be inaccurate, it does not effect the working of the Armillary Sphere since to an observer on Earth the motion of the Sun and Stars appears the same.
