"The Astronomer" is inspired by Da Vinci's discoveries in astronomy and how he was the first to figure out earthshine. Earthshine is the light that the earth shines back on the moon. When you see a crescent moon but can still see a glow of the full moon, thats earthshine. Also has been nicknamed "the Da Vinci Glow". The contraption in the clouds with the little mouse is inspired by Da Vinci's designs for a telescope.
