(This table is largely experimental. Don't mess about with it - use the Talk page if you want to discuss the format, etc. There should eventually be a page explaining the format of such tables. The absolute magnitudes probably need to be changed a little to take into account the improved distance estimates, especially for Beta Caeli. The HD numbers are provided mainly so that additional data can easily be found from the Hipparcos catalogue

The summary table appears on top of the "Brightest stars" table in Safari. -- Mpt 08:41, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Latin for Sky[edit]

I just checked it out, Caleum can mean both "Sky" or "Heaven" but it can also mean "The chisel".

Source here -->

The entry says 'Caelum (Latin for chisel, and similar to Latin for of the Sky)', yet, when I looked it up on a Latin site, it said caelum means sky.--Jcvamp 20:35, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

It says the same here and here and here too.--Jcvamp 20:45, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Caelum means sky or heaven and it is also the name of a character in the Wayfarer Redemption. -- (talk) 09:21, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

caelum (1) the burin or engraving tool. (2) the heavens, sky, air, climate.[1] kwami (talk) 09:38, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

Pre-FAC feedback[edit]

Got something to add from the Wagman book a bit later. Will have a read and jot any ideas I can think of below. Anything which breaks up, "star A is spectral type X, magnitude Y, and distance B is spectral type XX, magnitude YY, and distance C...." is helpful. Maybe some interesting tidbits about the stars will help. Will have a think. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 00:50, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Others - RS Caeli is a polar, which is pretty cool and I would have thought notable. Might be worth looking in to.
  • ST Caeli - intriguing. Might be nothing...but...
Although I wouldn't agree for pretty much any other constellation, I do agree that RS Caeli may be worth mentioning simply due to the dearth of objects in this constellation. ST, on the other hand, I still don't think is notable enough to be mentioned. StringTheory11 (t • c) 05:13, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
I added the above on the fly earlier today. Hadn't looked into references as yet. All depends on how intensively the stars have been studied. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 08:15, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
