Set: Urania's Mirror, Constellations of the Ecliptic[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 20 Apr 2014 at 23:13:52 (UTC)

Reason
Excluding Aquarius, Pisces, and Capricornus - which are all FPs already - these are the remaining constellations of the ecliptic, including Ophiuchus (under its archaic synonym, Serpentarius). This is probably the penultimate nomination from Urania's Mirror - hopefully soon to be a Featured Article! Do note two of these (Cancer, Leo) were scanned later by the LoC, at higher resolution, so may look a little different.

Probably better keeping them individual: It will take a long time to get the last two cards from Urania's mirror (I found somewhat decent fill-ins in the meantime.) The LOC didn't scan two of them, you see, so I basically have to beg them. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:35, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
