This chart of a celestial globe was originally published in “Smith’s Illustrated Astronomy” in 1855. The chart displays different star patterns, rotation axis, and constellations with the Earth at its center. The numerous stars and planetary bodies on this chart emphasize the vastness of space. Also, the inclusion of a small human being atop the Earth is a clever one to make in order to get across the point of how small our planet is when compared to the rest of our known universe.
