Latin LOLCat: The Stars

Here is today's Latin LOLCat. The Latin word for stars, astra (singular: aster; compare Greek astron), has the same root that you see in astronomy, astrology, asteroid, etc. Even "asterisk" comes from this same root! If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Ad astra!

To the stars!
