Historic Star Atlas Stories

The ancients believed that, when they gazed into the heavens, they were peering through many layers of swiftly turning spheres.  In the same way, today we gaze at the night sky filtered through many layers of cultural heritage and representation. The stars have a living history which shapes how we experience the sky tonight.  In this talk we will begin to explore some of the stories of the stars by examining historic images of the constellations as they have appeared over time and around the world.
