International Symbol for an Observer

@font-face { font-family: ‘observersymbol’; src: url('/img/observer-symbol/f/observersymbol-webfont.eot’); src: url('/img/observer-symbol/f/observersymbol-webfont?#iefix’) format(‘embedded-opentype’), url('/img/observer-symbol/f/observersymbol-webfont.woff’) format(‘woff’), url('/img/observer-symbol/f/observersymbol-webfont.ttf’) format(‘truetype’), url('/img/observer-symbol/f/observersymbol-webfont.svg#observersymbol’) format(‘svg’); font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; } Tl;dr: I couldn’t find an international symbol for an observer that was mentioned in an astronomy lecture, so I made one, dedicated it to the public domain and submitted it to the Unicode Consortium. This page details the rationale for my submission including files and usage examples. UPDATE · Tuesday 3 February 2015: U+23FF Observer Eye Symbol o was accepted at UTC-142 — yay!
