Paradise Lost, John Milton’s epic poem, describes the moon and stars as ‘bright luminaries:’
Revolved on Heaven's great axle, and her reign
With thousand lesser lights dividual holds,
With thousand thousand stars, that then appeared
Spangling the hemisphere: Then first adorned
With their bright luminaries that set and rose,
Glad evening and glad morn crowned the fourth day
The poem was originally published in 1667 in ten books. It concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man, which followed Satan’s temptation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
