It should say "the ecliptic passes through pisces, leo ect.." not the Celestial equator
Taurus lies fully north of the celestial equator but still comes very close to it (a few arcminutes). So I have removed it from the list of equatorial constellations. S k a t e b i k e r 18:28, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
According to the IAU boundaries, the SW corner of Taurus extends below the CE by a little over a degree. -Lasunncty 01:06, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
An observer standing on the Earth's equator visualizes the celestial equator as a semicircle passing directly overhead through the zenith. As the observer moves north (or south), the celestial equator tilts towards the southern (or northern) horizon.
This means the two are nearly the same, right? 188.8.131.52 23:55, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
