I think some of the best words in Old English relate to the heavens.
You can imagine our Anglo-Saxon ancestors gazing at the beautiful night sky, no air pollution in sight. Well, apart from the smoky smoky hall fires...
Ic eom tungolwitega ond ic seo þæt tungolgim
[itch ay-om tung-ol-wee-tay-ga ond itch say-oh that tung-ol-gim]
I'm an astrologer/star prophet and I behold that bright star
tunglen - starry
Steorgleaw - clever at astrology
