French artist, astronomer, and amateur entomologist Étienne Léopold Trouvelot is noted for two major contributions in his lifetime: the 7000 or so illustrations he created from his astronomical observations and the accidental introduction of the highly destructive European Gyspy moth in North America.
Obviously, today we’re going to take a look at some of his most exquisite astronomical illustrations, which are guaranteed to leave you speechless.
Trouvelot also published some 50 scientific papers, and was credited with discovering “veiled spots” on the Sun’s surface in 1875.
Truth be told, these illustrations look fantastic on a wall, especially if you’re passionate about astronomy.
