Filling the Sky book

Filling the Sky book

Published in 2003, Filling the Sky details the history of the modern constellations - those that were created in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries (the classical constellations are only briefly mentioned).

This website is based on Filling the Sky. Much of the book's contents can be found in the download files located on the 'Constellation Downloads' and 'Who's Who' pages. Those wishing to pursue the study of the modern constellations in greater depth may find the 74 bibliography entries and almost 200 reference citations in the book a useful tool. You will also find some additional text and illustrations not found on the website. See Sky & Telescope magazine, September 2004, page 114, for a short synopsis of my book.



Spiral bound. Dimensions are 8.5 x 11 inches, 192 pages. Over 100 black & white illustrations. Privately published (2003). ISBN 0-9744397-0-3
