Johann Elert Bode

Johann Elert Bode (1747-1826) was a German astronomer known for his contribution to the Titius-Bode law.

Bode was the director of the Berlin Observatory, where he published Uranographia in 1801, one of the first successful attempts at mapping all stars visible to the naked eye without any artistic interpretation of the stellar constellation figures.
