Aquila, the Eagle,
from Bayer's Uranometria of 1603.
Aquila flys across the Milky Way (which runs across the picture
from upper left to lower right), the bright star Altair in
its neck. The celestial Eagle is shown carrying Antinous, a figure from
ancient Roman times, a constellation that is no longer recognized.
