INTRODUCTION


Since time immemorial, heavenly bodies have been a subject of great fascination, study and stories for mankind. Historical evidence, stories and murals from ancient civilizations suggest that the sky has always been an integral part of their life and finds its place in numerous calculations and predictions. For example, as per Hindu Mythology, Lord Shiva's son Kartikeya was named on a nakshatra (star) "Kritika" (seven sisters), which is known as "M45" or "Pleiades" in astronomy. Likewise the Mayan Civilization and the Harappa Civilization are known to have a profound knowledge of the sky. There might be misconceptions or superstitions associated with it, nevertheless mankind from the earliest stages of civilization had a fair knowledge of astronomy. Our understanding of the sky has improved as our knowledge in science and technology improved.
