Typo in image[edit]

Altair is marked on the map at "Atair". Is there any way anyone can put in the missing L? Said: mr X

Literal answer: yes. Pragmatic answer: I just did. The procedure is this and that complicated, but since I've interests in direction of star map programs, I downloaded PP3 before and regenerated a new aquila, where the name of Atair really is "Altair".

Pronunciation[edit]

Aquila /əˈkwɪlə, ˈakwələ/ - in Latin it would (?) have been circa /aˈkʷila, ˈakʷila/, the first one illegal: /ˈakʷila/ being the legal one, resulting (by normal sorrowful English vowel distorsion) in /'eikwɪlə, ˈakwɪlə/. Can anyone attest the monstrosities /əˈkwɪlə, ˈakwələ/ from any source?? Rursus 10:00, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Aquila (constellation) Trivia[edit]

According to the Australian newspaper mX, 3 June 2014, there is enough alcohol in a cloud of the Aquila constellation to make 400 trillion trillion (sic) pints of beer. Any truth in this story? Eligius (talk) 00:18, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
