Ancient-Skies - Knowledgebase Query

Our knowledgebase holds those stars visible to the unaided eye (e.g. down to visual magnitude 6.0) with their visual attributes (location Ra/De, visual magnitude, color) and their identification within various star catalogues (HIPPARCOS, Bayer, Flamsteed, Ptolemy, Henry Draper, Durchmusterungen, …).

For a certain human culture, the knowledgebase holds constellations with their attributes (name, description, myths and constellation lines between stars) and also names, descriptions and myths of stars, celestial objects (sun, moon, planets, milkyway, plejades, …) and celestial events (eclipses, comets, …). As the number of human cultures represented in our knowledgebase is steadly increasing, you might wish to

filter your search to certain global regions or certain cultural epoches.


Every single element within the knowledgebase has a named primary source and can be enriched with a list of relevant links to other resources on the internet.


The knowledgebase is available to registered members only.


Of course the registration is free of costs and obligations
(except the obligation to follow our published rules and accepted behaviours).
