Your Place in the Universe
Our understanding of pre-historic human’s view of the night sky is continually evolving.
Thousands of years ago, civilizations in China, the Middle East, and North Africa lived close to the earth and formed deep connections with the universe. Relying solely on the sharpness of their eyesight, these early astronomers mapped the night sky with incredible accuracy. The stars they would’ve been most familiar with were found near the equator, patterns that traveled across their line of sight on the ecliptic, eventually becoming the Zodiac Constellations.
