In casting this spell, the mage can gain information about one object that he touches. The mage receives visions of events that occurred around the object in the past. The mage can see events which occurred within a sphere of 10 meters radius centered on the object. The object must fit completely within the sphere. The mage, and only the mage, can view a scene from any point in past less than or equal to the effect value of the spell. The wizard observes the scene in real time. After selecting the initial past-point, the magician may scan through images either futureward or

Pastward of the initial past-point, searching for interesting scenes. He scans images at a rate of one week of images per minute of spell.
