Pure cosmic awe: Saturn’s swirling rings

Behold: The Māori solar system!
Mercury is Whiro
Venus is Kōpū, also Koopuu Taawera or Meremere Tuu Ahiahi
Earth is Papatuanuku, also Te Ao
Earth’s moon is Marama
Mars is Matawhero
Jupiter is Kopu-nui, also Hine-i-tīweka or Paeaarau
Saturn is Pareārau
As I understand it, the outer planets had no traditional Māori names. Uranus is barely visible to the naked eye, and Neptune and Pluto were only discovered after the invention of telescopes.

Celestial skyscrapers. Night sky can’t be seen over major cities due to light pollution. Cohen photographed cities and took special note of time, angle, latitude and longitude of the photographs.He followed the same stars and photographed them in more ideal locations, such as the Sahara Desert.
