Galileo thermometer reading 72 degrees F.
Temperature Changes

The spheres rise with falling temperature and vice versa, as demonstrated in the graphic.

Since the spheres react to water temperature, rapid fluctuations in the surrounding air temperature are filtered.

The Galileo thermometer measures an average temperature over time.
