30 Urania

Urania is one of the nine muses of Greek myth, which include Terpsichore, Erato, Clio, Thalia, Polyhymnia, Calliope, Euterpe, Urania, and Melpomene. She is the muse of astronomy. Since she inspires those who practice on the intersection of art and astronomy, I suppose I should be invoking her for this project. Consider this wiki page that invocation. Speak through me, O Muse.

The symbol of this minor planet is a celestial globe. This has the form of a sphere with an asteroidal star in the center, connected on the upper and lower poles to a horizontal base.
