Sights of Copenhagen

Rundetårn Observatory - the night sky

On your way down you can admire this beautiful depiction of the night sky. Is it the zodiac, or symbolic pictures of the star constellations, or both? I do not know, as the boundaries between what we today call science (Astronomy) and what we call superstition (Astrology, Alchemy) were not as sharp then as now. Whatever, these remains of a time long gone by, fills you with awe, as there is so much we do not know.
