Abstract: The apse ceiling was repainted to replace the sun image with the moon. The ceiling shows the Lynx constellation which is in the northern hemisphere. It was introduced in the 17th century by Johannes Hevelius. Its name originates from the fact that someone would need the eyes of a lynx to see it.
Description: This image was received from the Communications Office in 2010.
