Beautiful astronomical illustrations by Étienne Léopold Trouvelot, all based on observations made by the French artist-astronomer in the 1870s and 1880s. Fun fact: Trouvelot, also an entomologist, is somewhat infamous for the unfortunate introduction of the gypsy moth into North America. Those pesky things are known to feast on the leaves of over 300 species of trees, shrubs and plants. (New York Public Library)
