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