Astronomical Illustrations From 1870

These illustrations are the work of French astronomer Etienne Leopold Trouvelot who made them between 1868 and 1881. The illustrations are quite intriguing and give us an insight into the world of astronomy at that time. Seeing these images, we now know that Jupiter is secretly a cylops and Mars is just a giant christmas ornament.
