    Cool 1800s Astronomy Artwork

    Here are some illustrations of planets and sunspots and stuff all done in the 1800s! According to the article, photographs just couldn't get accurate detail yet, so this French illustrator drew what he saw through telescopes. How tedious!

    I'm surprised how stylized these are. It's almost like astronomic Art Deco...
    Nice post.
