The Enchanted Moondial is a furniture item that can be placed. Pressing Open / Activate on it will advance time to dusk (7:30 PM) on the current or following day. It has a 7-day cooldown period, so once used, it will not be usable again until 7 in-game days (2 hours and 48 minutes in real time) have passed normally. The Enchanted Moondial is obtained by throwing an Enchanted Sundial into Shimmer.

The Enchanted Moondial does not turn the time to dusk immediately. It instead "fast-forwards" time, causing it to pass 60 times faster than usual (1 hour of in-game time, which would usually take 1 minute of real-life time, takes only 1 second while the Enchanted Moondial is active). Sleeping in a Bed will not make time pass faster while the Enchanted Moondial is active. The Enchanted Moondial glows to indicate when it is ready to be used.

  • The 7-day cooldown will be instantly reset if a Blood Moon or Solar Eclipse occurs naturally, allowing the player to skip these events.
  • When the Enchanted Moondial is available for use, the dial at the top of its sprite will glow a bright blue. The circle in the middle will also glow in a shape that represents the current phase of the moon, essentially functioning as a Sextant. However, its sprite does not change in the player's inventory.
  • The Enchanted Moondial is a mechanism that can be activated when connected to wire.
  • The Enchanted Moondial's cooldown timer is separate from the Enchanted Sundial's cooldown timer, so using one does not affect the other.
