This interesting composite image was published in Hartford, Connecticut in 1835 by F.J. Huntington. It shows three separate diagrams explaining various celestial principles and phenomena.
The first image, dominating the upper half of the sheet, is a visible comparison in the size of seven planets, as well as an outline of the various phases of the moon. The lower half of the sheet shows two plans; the leftmost is a visual comparison of distances between various celestial bodies while the right side shows the arrangement and angles of various planetary orbits.
Explanatory remarks and legends provide helpful context in each of the three illustrations.
