King Louis XIV, also known as the Sun King (Zonnekoning) has stayed quite often in the castle of Heeswijk Dinther in The Netherlands. a temporary installation was made that was located UNDER the water in the moat where every 15 minutes, the sun would rise and set and every other 15 minutes, the stars would come up and go down. The sunrise and sunset were implemented in the MU24-700 LED drivers firmware. Due to the use of low voltage, the installation could safely be installed under the waterlevel.
