TITLE: Art & Astronomy
Astronomical objects sometime make an appearance in works of art or literature. This then gives astronomers an opportunity to delve deeper into these works and discover details that would otherwise have remained a mystery. So what can, two paintings by van Gogh, the Roman invasion of Britain in 55 BC, Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Edvard Munch’s The Scream tell us?
