THE NIGHT SKY 

This map illustrates the animals, people, and objects imagined in the sky by more than 30 different civilizations.

For thousands of years, humans have looked up at the stars in the night sky for navigation, divination, and storytelling. Before the invention of telescopes, ancient Egyptians used the bright star Sirius to predict the annual flooding of the Nile river. Ancient Polynesians navigated by the stars through the open ocean for hundreds of kilometers.

This map shows every star that might be visible to the human eye on the darkest night. It also shows the asterisms, or the pattern of stars in the sky, that were recorded by cultures and ancient texts around the world. 

The star locations in this map are based on scientific databases. However, the asterisms are based on an open source database updated by volunteers. Many of the asterisms are approximate, and we are unsure of the exact patterns of many asterisms - especially those from hundreds of years in the past. Although we can't say for sure that these are the exact names and patterns invented by each culture, we can still use these historical estimates to visualize the breadth of human creativity and our shared fascination with the sky.

We purchased 4 large fine art prints and are very happy with the quality of the prints.... impressive detail and color.
Great service, and the owner quickly responded to questions (even over the weekend). He also thought along with us, offering custom print sizing.
