Although most S&T globes use imaging data gather by spacecraft, our celestial globe is an entirely homegrown effort. The algorithm for sizing the "dots" to show its 2,934 stars, the “stick figures” used to connect each constellation’s brightest stars, and the programming to projection everything onto a sphere are all done by S&T’s editors and especially by Senior Contributing Editor Roger Sinnott. The S&T staff knew the project would require far more effort than any previous globe project, yet the more we looked around, the more we realized that no one offered the detailed yet affordable star globe that we envisioned. And so, with a green light from management, we set to work.
Did You Know?Sky & Telescope’s Celestial Globe includes proper (common) names for 194 stars, including 10 that were adopted in 2015 by the International Astronomical Union for stars with known planetary systems. These new monikers reflect more modern themes, such as Cervantes from Don Quixote.
