Some time ago I came accross a 2d map of the stars visible from earth. The mapping was done by a British woman scientist, whose name I cannot remmeber.<br />The map shows a lot of areas with very few or no stars at all and the rest of the image can be interpreted as a human with the open arms.<br /><br />Does anybody have any information on this?<br /><br />Thanks.

Well, if you find it be sure to post a link to it so we get to see how they've turned the entire 9100 naked-eye stars (mag 6.5) into one giant "God constellation". It ought to be great! It probably shows folds in his robes and stuff; is it a he? <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

kmarinas86 - Agreed.<br /><br />First, on your link, which is off theme:<br /><br />That link should be corrected. Africans did suffer from so-called Christian colonization methods, but these methods were not taught by Jesus.<br /><br />That is why we call these religions Christendom, not Christianity, since their methods are so different from Jesus' teachings.<br /><br />Now, on thread theme:<br /><br />I am not aware of a second star map and have no idea what this thread is supposed to be about.<br /><br />However, it is interesting that the Bible refers to the number of stars as comparable to the sands of the seashore.<br /><br />There are many more than 8,000 sands grains on the sea shore- so a second star map to include this many stars would naturally be called for.<br /><br />What is the largest number of stars actually included in a man-made star map at this time?<br /><br />As a tangent, does anyone know how many stars night migrating birds navigate by? I am referring to birds like the black-capped chickadee which do not use other methods like the earth's magnetic field for night migration.<br /><br />Or how these star maps are depicted in these bird's DNA chemical language?<br />

I rarely ressurect old threads, but...<br /><br />*bump*<br /><br />Surprised I missed this one.<br /><br />I'm fairly certain this is referring to the Harvard Smithsonian team of Margaret Geller and John Huchra, and their 2nd CfA redshift Survey.<br /><br />http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/~huchra/zcat/<br /><br />If you scroll down, just a little, you will see that the particular distribution of Galaxies they saw does indeed resemble a stick-figure person.<br /><br />However, I will provide the same warning to those who see structures there as that given to Geller / Huchra by the eminent Princeton Physicist, John Archibald Wheeler: "Beware of seeing order in things. The Human eye is a great deceiver for seeing order in everything."<br /><br />Enjoy. <br /><br />*Edited to provide the more accurate JAW quote* <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><em>Differential Diagnosis:  </em>"<strong><em>I am both amused and annoyed that you think I should be less stubborn than you are</em></strong>."<br /> </p> </div>

I have been looking for a 3D view of all the stars visible to the naked eye from outside Earth.<br />That would be an amazing image of "amazing images".<br />On Public TV someone was showing a 3D image of a face made up of visible stars. I just got the end of the program and did not follow up on it. I know someone has it and many know about it. There are databases of visible stars, how hard would it be to run the data through a 3D-mapping program? What area of the Universe would the face be clearest? <br />Keep asking and keep in touch.<br />--for scoffers--<br />Face it, if you were God and Jesus was your Son what would you paint using the stars? <br />"Is man the measure of all things?"<br />Just because He is not real to you does not mean He is not real to many others who know Him in a personal way. What would keep a person from knowing a knowable God? Pride? We are too dumb to ask for wisdom.
