Asterisms

A chart of the stars and constellations in the night sky.


Asterisms - Full Size

Asterisms charts the night sky onto an A2 poster. The projection distorts the both hemispheres onto a circle, giving a combined view of the northern and sourthen skies. The ecliptic path can be seen swerving through the centre of the chart, as can the Milky Way’s cluster of stars. This work is an adaptation of a sky chart from Allsky Asterisms, with many modifications and liberties taken.

Below are some details of the star chart. The typefaces used include Effra from Dalton Maag and The Lost Type Co-op’s Klinic Slab.

Altair, “the flying eagle”, in the Aquila constellation

M33 in the Triangulum constellation, one of the most distant objects visible with the naked eye

The constellation of Leo and the awesome-sounding Al’dzhabkhakh
