Astronomy

'God has no intention of setting a limit to the efforts of man to conquer space' — Pope Pius XII

Astronomy is known to be as one of the oldest of the natural sciences.

The Solar System is one of the most popular terms used in astronomy, being the gravitationally bound system comprising the objects that orbit the Sun as well as the Sun itself, either in a direct or in an indirect way.

The majority of the system's mass is in the Sun. The four smaller inner planets, apart from the larger Jupiter, are Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Earth. Those four are known to be the terrestrial planets. They are mainly composed of metal and rock. The four outer planets are known to be called as the “giant” ones as they are more massive than the terrestrials.

The two largest planets are Saturn and Jupiter. They are composed mainly of helium and hydrogen. Apart from the already mentioned, the Solar System also contains smaller objects. All of the needed objects may be always illustrated with the help of the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.

To simplify the work of drawing, the Astronomy solution may be used as an extension to the ConceptDraw PRO application. The last-mentioned sketching and illustration software may be used with the Astronomy solution allowing one to create the astronomy-related drawings by editing the pre-made templates and samples of the illustrations of the Space. There are also a few stencil libraries where a variety of astronomy symbols such as constellations, stars, planet and galaxies vector shapes may be found.

The Astronomy solution may be used by all the ConceptDraw PRO users for drawing both educational and scientific astronomy illustrations, astronomy diagrams and pictures of any complexity, such as the representations of the Solar System.


There are 7 libraries containing 191 astronomy symbols in the Astronomy solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw PRO application by using the Astronomy solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Astronomy solution is available to all ConceptDraw PRO users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.

Example 1: Astronomy Picture — Solar System

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Stars and Planets Library from the Astronomy Solution. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows how you can map the vast expanse of the Solar system, using the Astronomy Solution for ConceptDraw PRO. Creating astronomy pictures is a simple task when using the solutions comprehensive libraries, full of astronomy symbols and planet vector shapes.

Example 2: Astronomy Picture — Extragalactic Distance Ladder

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Stars and Planets Library from the Astronomy Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample demonstrates the extragalactic distance ladder - a visual interpretation of the methods used by astronomers to measure the distances between celestial objects. ConceptDraw PRO is the perfect software to map out this complicated method.

Example 3: Astronomy Picture — Natural Hierarchy Rearranged

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Stars and Planets Library from the Astronomy Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample visualizes the natural hierarchy of organisms, and the planets of our Solar system. Use ConceptDraw illustration software to design striking and engaging astronomy pictures, illustrations and diagrams.

Example 4: Astronomy Picture — Summer Triangle Network

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the “Constellations Except Zodiac Northern and Southern” and “Zodiac Constellations” Libraries from the Astronomy Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the Summer Triangle - an astronomical asterism in the northern hemisphere, forming an imaginary triangle in the celestial sphere with vertices at the stars Altair, Deneb, and Vega, the brightest stars of the constellations Aquila, Cygnus, and Lyra.

Example 5: Astronomy Picture — Phases of the Moon

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Stars and Planets Library from the Astronomy Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample illustrates the phases of moon. Various libraries have been used in conjunction with the Stars and Planets library, to create an informative diagram of the lunar cycle.

What I Need to Get Started

Both ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software and the Astronomy solution can help creating the learning materials you need. The Astronomy solution can be found in the Science and Education area of ConceptDraw STORE application that can be downloaded from this site. Make sure that both ConceptDraw PRO and ConceptDraw STORE applications are installed on your computer before you get started.

How to install

After ConceptDraw STORE and ConceptDraw PRO are downloaded and installed, you can install the Astronomy solution from the ConceptDraw STORE.

Astronomy solution - Install

Start Using

To make sure that you are doing it all right, use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the solution to make your drawings look smart and professional. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them. Using the samples, you can always change their structures, colors and data.
