The night sky has intrigued people the world over — sailors, astronomers, farmers and pretty much anyone who looks up. It offers a portrait of Earth's past and conjures up anticipation of what the future may hold. It entices you to imagine what it must be like out there in that vast unknown, what we may be missing and who waits for us — if anyone.
And like so many things in life, it inspires art.
