Sources in Preparation

The Sky Tonight website features high quality images of the constellations taken from historical sources, courtesy (at launch) of the History of Science Collections, University of Oklahoma Libraries, and prepared by website curators Kerry Magruder, Brent Purkaple and Aja Tolman. "Sources" as used here are the original publications from which the high resolution images available on this site were taken. Contributing libraries, repositories and curators provide high quality digitized source images in the public domain or distributed under a Creative Commons license. Sources currently in preparation (by The Sky Tonight curators unless otherwise noted):

Ancient Sources

Early Modern Sources

19th-century Sources

Asian constellations

Egyptian or Hieroglyphic constellations

Hebrew or Kabbalah constellations


And many more will be added to this site as time permits.
