Picture of the day

The constellation Boötes ('the plowman') as depicted in Urania's Mirror, a set of constellation cards published in London c. 1825. In his left hand Boötes holds his hunting dogs, Canes Venatici. Below them is the constellation Coma Berenices, named after the hair of Berenice II of Egypt. Above Boötes' head is the now obsolete constellation Quadrans Muralis; another obsolete constellation, Mons Maenalus, can be seen at his feet.
