Allegorical zodiac figures encircling the diagram represent the rest of the universe. The chart is surrounded by richly engraved scenes of the sun, stars, planets, putti, and astronomical instruments. At bottom left is a solar eclipse projected onto a terrestrial map on a polar projection that includes the Island of California.
