Almost since the beginning of time, human beings have been fascinated by the starry sky above their heads. What were these little points of light up there? Not having names for them yet, people wondered about the moon and the Sun. Evidence for this fascination traces well back into the earliest stages of civilization, as e.g. cave paintings from the Stone Age suggest. The paintings of Lascaux in France are a very famous example for this. They were created between 17,000 and 15,000 BC and epic the Pleiades, the zodiac and probably also the summer sky.
