I created this animation from four images:
The whale is from The naturalist's miscellany, or Coloured figures of natural objects (1789).
The backdrop circle is from The Land of the Hibiscus Blossom: a yarn of the Papuan Gulf (1888).
The constellation diagram is from Orient Line Guide, etc (1894).
The background nebula is from Love and the Stars. Verses original and translated (1926).
