Slideshow: Ad Sidera Vultus

Here is today's emblem and distich by Joachim Camerarius, 4:17. As you can see in the emblem, the "stargazer" (Uranoscopus scaber) is a fish that has its eyes always turned up to the heavens. You can see a picture of this odd-looking fish here. For vocabulary, see the original blog post.
