Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is an astronomical symbol? (Definition)

Each item of the solar system has been assigned, over astronomical discoveries, a name and a symbol (drawing/representation), such as the sun, the moon, the 8 planets of the solar system, but also the dwarf planets.

How to recognize astronomical symbols?

Apart from the sun and the moon, the symbols are rather unrepresentative and sometimes there are several symbols (depending on the source) for a same asteroid or planet.

Example: Here are the most common symbols:

char(1)Sun
char(2)char(3)char(4)Moon
char(6)Mercury
char(7)Venus
char(8)char(9)Earth
char(10)Mars
char(11)Jupiter
char(12)Saturn
char(13)char(14)Uranus
char(15)char(16)Neptune
