Astronomy is a beautiful discipline, but by comparison, the taxonomy of astronomical objects is a blunt and ugly collection of words, mostly a combination of historical accidents and well-intentioned categorizers. Just ask anyone who is still mad about Pluto's redefinition as a dwarf planet.

For that reason, here is where I collect pages for the symbols of astronomical bodies which are difficult to categorize, including ones that don't exist anymore or don't exist yet, and even some tangential things that aren't astronomical bodies at all.


Planet V


Planet Nine

Terra Nova

International Space Station


Gamma-Ray Constellations
