I was looking for Astronomical symbols in LaTeX, esp. for the Sun. And I thought probably there’s only one package available for it. As it seems there are quite a few many of them. I found them in the huge LaTeX symbol list available as PDF online. Here’s the snapshot of the astronomical symbol page:

Symbols of Astronomical symbols

Interestingly, in the same list, these symbols are listed as Astrological symbols, too. Quite a slap in the face of any Astronomers! 🙂 Well, I used the wasysym package which has many more useful symbols. Nonetheless, you can decide which package you like, since microscopically those symbols are little different than other. So I recommend every LaTeX user should download the comprehensive list of symbols. You won’t regret it. You can get it here.
