Aries, the Ram, from
Bayer's Uranometria of 1603. The head of Taurus, the Bull,
appears at lower left, highlighted by the first mangintude
star Aldebaran. The horizontal dashed line is the ecliptic.
The broad dark band centered on the ecliptic shows the region
in which the Moon and planets can be found. |
