This is a follow up from a previous post:Southern Astronomical Delights Going through the site, very interesting articles.

Quote from the article:

“Astronomy surpasses every other science in the sublimity
and grandeur of the objects in which it contemplates.
The magnificent appearance of the Celestial Bodies, the
regularity and harmony of their motions, combined with
the various phenomena they display, strike us with
astonishment and profound admiration!”


The British Celestial Atlas”, vi. (1830)
