A Celestial Planisphere, or Map of the Heavens, from 1835. Made by cartographer F. J. Huntington, this hand-colored star chart shows the Ecliptic Line crossing the sky from east to west, the Milky Way, and dozens of constellations filling the sky. Along the bottom is a scale showing the sun’s place in the ecliptic for every day of the year and shows the stars of the Zodiac with their astronomical symbols.
