World’s oldest full star map present in medieval manuscript

Students could have simply found a fraction of the world’s oldest full star map. 

The map phase, which was discovered beneath the textual content on a sheet of medieval parchment, is regarded as a duplicate of the long-lost star catalog of the second century B.C. Greek astronomer Hipparchus, who made the earliest recognized try and chart your entire night time sky. The fragment was hid beneath 9 leaves, or folios, of the non secular Codex Climaci Rescriptus at St. Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
