From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Sundial was created by Osiris after the destruction of Panoptes, Infinite Mind. It was constructed with The Drifter's help, to bring back the legendary titan Saint-14. After the experiment failed, Osiris had the Sundial hidden.
When the three Cabal Psion sisters Niruul, Ozletc and Tazaroc arrived on Mercury, they found a prototype of the Sundial hidden away. With the prototype found and the timeways unraveled by The Undying Mind's final destruction, they planned to manipulate history, where the Red Legion wins the Red War.
