Design elements - Astronomical symbols

The vector stencils library "Astronomical symbols" contains 58 astronomical symbols and astrological signs of Solar system planets, stars, Sun, Moon, Earth, constellations, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, comet, Zodiac signs.
"Astronomical symbols are symbols used to represent various celestial objects, theoretical constructs and observational events in astronomy. The earliest forms of these symbols appear in Greek papyri of late antiquity. The Byzantine codices in which the Greek papyri were preserved continued and extended the inventory of astronomical symbols. New symbols were further invented to represent many just-discovered planets and minor planets discovered in the 18th-20th centuries.
All these symbols were once commonly used by professional astronomers, amateur astronomers, and astrologers. While they are still commonly used in almanacs and astrological publications, their occurrence in published research and texts on astronomy is relatively infrequent, with some exceptions such as the Sun and Earth symbols appearing in astronomical constants, and certain zodiacal signs used to represent the solstices and equinoxes."

The pictograms example "Design elements - Astronomical symbols" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Astronomy solution from the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
