This is my 2nd day using this "discussion". I don't see the 1st post I made.

The APOD description requested that readers/viewers to give a "Title" to the graphics image.

Following the links in the APOD description... The book is posted on line.
From the book page just under the illustration is the following:

Un missionnaire du moyen age raconte qu'il avait trouve le point ou le ciel et
la Terre se touchent...

The above is in French (of course). The Translation is:

A missionary of the Middle Ages tells that he had found the point where heaven
& earth touch ...

1st appeared in a book by Camille Flammarion in 1888

L'atmosphère: Météorologie Populaire
The Atmosphere: Popular Meteorology

From that description of the image the obvious title is:

"The Point Where Heaven & Earth Touch ..."

Give the time period & the book's context, the description is very poetic & enlightening.

I concur w/ above. I've seen this illustration as a depiction of Ezekiel's vision of God (the most detailed theophany, I gather, in the Bible). Although the illustrator may have used considerable artistic license, I think it's hard to argue that, given the unmistakable and prominent wheel-within-a-wheel, his/her intent did not intent to portray this Scripture.

Best guess?

Like many early woodcuts, it was probably done for a Bible. My vote is for Ezekiel seeing the wheel.

It is "The Third Heaven!" 2 Corinthians 12:2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know – God knows.

First Heaven is the Earths atmosphere, Second Heaven is the universe, Third is where God resides.

Second Book of Enoch wrote:
In 2 Enoch, Enoch travels through the seven heavens and gives geographical and visual documentation of them, describing houses, olive oil and flowers. He passes through the Garden of Eden in the Third Heaven on his way to meet a Lord in the 7th Heaven.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Heavens wrote:
<<In religious or mythological cosmology, the seven heavens refer to the seven divisions of the Heaven, the abode of immortal beings, or the visible sky, the expanse containing the Sun, Moon and the stars. The idea of seven heavens was originated in ancient Mesopotamia. It was probably a symbolic concept. In Sumerian language, the words for heaven (or sky) and earth are An and Ki. Sumerian incantations of the late second millennium BCE make references to seven heavens and seven earths. One such incantation is: "an-imin-bi ki-imin-bi" (the heavens are seven, the earths are seven.) The notion of seven heavens may have been derived from the "magical" properties of the number seven, like the seven demons or the seven thrones. The number seven appears frequently in Babylonian magical rituals. The seven Jewish and the seven Islamic heavens may have had their origin in Babylonian astronomy.

In general, heaven is not a place for humans in Mesopotamian religion. As Gilgamesh says to his friend Enkidu, in the Epic of Gilgamesh: "Who can go up to heaven, my friend? Only the gods dwell with Shamash forever". Along with the idea of seven heavens, the idea of three heavens was also common in ancient Mesopotamia.>>

I'd like to propose the Title: Through Adversity To The Stars. This passage comes from the Royal Canadian Air Force motto in Latin: Per ardua ad astra.

From Wkipedia "Through adversity to the stars" or "Through struggle to the stars" is the motto of the Royal Air Force and other Commonwealth air forces such as the RAAF, RCAF, RNZAF, and the SAAF. It dates from 1912 and was used by the newly formed Royal Flying Corps.
