Signature of the Celestial Spheres
The program Signature of the Celestial Spheres’ invites you to embark on a journey of discovery through our cosmic home with its extraordinary phenomena of movement.
In this example in 3 (out of 750) steps we have a five-fold star-flower created by the linklines between Venus (green) and the Earth over the course of 8 years.
You will get to know the phenomena of planetary movement and the basics of astronomy in a vivid, exciting and playful way. These pictures allow you to experience the marvellous order in our solar system which confirms in an entirely new way the age-old dream of a harmony of the spheres.
