APOD: Color the Universe (2023 Jun 04)

Post by APOD Robot » Sun Jun 04, 2023 4:06 am

Image Color the Universe

Explanation: Wouldn't it be fun to color in the universe? If you think so, please accept this famous astronomical illustration as a preliminary substitute. You, your friends, your parents or children, can print it out or even color it digitally. While coloring, you might be interested to know that even though this illustration has appeared in numerous places over the past 100 years, the actual artist remains unknown. Furthermore, the work has no accepted name -- can you think of a good one? The illustration, first appearing in a book by Camille Flammarion in 1888, is frequently used to show that humanity's present concepts are susceptible to being supplanted by greater truths.

I think “Plus Ultra is a good name for Flammarion’s book picture. It is latin and frequently used from Renaissance. It could be translated as going beyond; this is is humanity’s main driver, always going beyond Earth’s end or knowing ourselves further, and is perfectly represented in the picture.

That could be easily mistaken with some phone model in these days. :)

Interesting - top left. There is a depiction of Ezekiel's Wheel. Similar to https://dia.pitts.emory.edu/woodcuts/15 ... 017291.pdf

"The wheel in the sky keeps on turning."

There is also , bottom left a priest crawling on Earth with his head sticking into the heavens above.

"Open Your Eyes And See!", or "Science!"

And I've half a mind to change my avatar pic to something like this (although the coloring used portrays "this" world as being more colorful than "the one beyond", which is probably the opposite of the truth!):

“Twenty-First Century Regression,” unfortunately.

I once met someone who actually believed that scientists had actually accidentally punched through the actual literal firmament, and water started pouring through. He had caught my attention because he was pointing at Jupiter and telling his partner that it was the north star.

The Discoverer, because Daniel Boorstein used the image for the cover of his book "The Discoverers".

The only way I can think to visualize a next dimension is to look at a tilted mirror and see it's reflection in 3 dimensions. :?:

Love those colors, Johnny! 🤩

My own suggestion for a title for this picture is either "The Clockwork Universe" or "What the Universe would look like if it was the Truman Show".


I know, the Truman Show name is too long. I like it, all the same.
