Delightfully, the actual Antikythera machine did about half-a-dozen such calculations (planets, moon, sun) all at once, displaying the results in at least two calendars. Probably a lego-ification of all of it would be too stiff to turn. But what a great little movie.AM

Oh John, words don't actually *mean* things...silly...
