"Calliope and Clio rest their quills, 
As wise Urania at the chorus thrills"
H.P. Lovecraft, R. Kleiner Laureatus In Heliconem

"OURANIA (Urania) was one of the nine Mousai, the goddesses of music, song and dance. In the Classical era, when the Mousai were assigned specific artistic and literary spheres, Ourania was named Muse of astronomy and astronomical writings. In this guise she was depicted with a celestial globe."
Aaron J. Atsma, The Theoi Project: Greek Mythology
