In the other thread "How did they distribute time in the old days?" Bill
> It loses or gains about a minute a month depending on the moon phase

Why should sunspots affect the rate of a pendulum clock? Sunspots are not
related to gravity. What about?  Any other kind of clocks is affected by
sunspots? Who knows? Is what Bill stated reliable? Any paper or website
about?I would be interested in recorded pendulum clock drift data.
