Celestial visibility is the study of the limits of observability of objects in the sky, with applications to deducing the truth about historical events or to the derivation of astronomical information of modern utility. Celestial visibility calculations involve modelling of phenomena from astronomy, meteorology, optics, physics, and physiology, and the necessary equations are widely scattered over the scientific literature. This poster will present 84 equations with numerous references and tables of typical values. The point is that this set of equations can easily be used to solve most celestial visibility problems.
