Astronomy Art

Astronomy Art is an experiment to improve and upgrade the visualization of the astronomical data. This is done by making a collage, drawing, or painting of celestial objects. Artistic Astronomy can be defined as the application of art to science. Astronomy is a branch of mathematics that studies the movements of heavenly bodies. It is also the study of celestial objects in relation to the human world. The art of astronomy studies the visual effects that are produced by the movement and structures of celestial objects.

Astronomy art came into being when the European Renaissance started to develop. It was begun about 150 years ago. The goal was to find ways of putting the stars into pictures. People then discovered that by using a telescope they could study any object in the universe. It was then that artists started to take advantage of this tool. They started to use visual aids that could be applied on telescopes to better give an accurate visualization of heavenly bodies.

A notable person who made significant contributions to this field was Leonardo da Vinci. He was an Italian painter who lived during the Renaissance. His most famous artwork is the Mona Lisa. In this piece he depicted the Virgin Mary’s hands. This painting is still very popular today and it even received one of the highest honors for being a milestone in the progression of art in the Renaissance.

Another artist involved in this field was Hans Memling. He was born in Norway in 1495. He went to college in Germany, studied painting there, and later became a professional painter in Venice. He made several drawings of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. These were put together to make a catalog called the Astronomical Diaries.

During the late 1700s French mathematician Constant Lapworth made some calculations concerning the moon. One day, he noticed a strange shadow that was cast from the moon. It was unlike any other that he had seen. When he went back to Europe, he presented his findings to the French Academy. They were not able to understand what he had seen. It was because of this shadow that French mathematician Jean Baptiste de La Rouchfoucauld considered him a master of the telescope.

Telescopes have been around for quite some time. The first models were created by English astronomer Sir Edwin R. Bradbourne. It was due to this telescope research that the field of astronomy was born. Astronomy art is still continuing today with new telescopes and innovative ways to present images and information. It is a fascinating area of science and technology that will be around for a long time.
