The Seven Wonders of
the ancient World is the first known list of the most remarkable creations
of classical antiquity; it was based on guidebooks popular
among Hellenic sightseers and only includes works located around
the Mediterranean rim and in Mesopotamia. The number seven was
chosen because the Greeks believed it represented perfection and plenty,
and because it was the number of the five planets known anciently, plus
the Sun and Moon. In the sky above our head, there are wonders too
numerous to count. But what could we choose as the seven most
remarkable objects visible, either with just our eyes or with a simple pair
of binoculars or a small telescope? Seven objects which we might call,
β€œThe Seven Wonders of the Universe.”
