My current feeling about this folio is that it represents
Kepler's Star, the supernova of 1604.
I've got a color copy of it, but no, I hadn't noticed
the green stars. Planets are a good idea, considering
the SN was in Ophiuchus, so the Zodiac was just
below it. I'll see what Starry Night turns up. Thanks!
