|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Caelum article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
- (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 http://astro.estec.esa.nl/Hipparcos/HIPcatalogueSearch.html.)
The summary table appears on top of the "Brightest stars" table in Safari. -- Mpt 08:41, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Latin for Sky
I just checked it out, Caleum can mean both "Sky" or "Heaven" but it can also mean "The chisel".

|Article Passed GA Review|
Greetings! I will be reviewing this article for whether it meets Good Article Criteria. My initial review will be followed by a prose review and I expect that to be up in the early hours of tomorrow (UTC). -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 15:54, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
Wow! This article is very well written, and is most definitely GA-quality.
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 Z...star B is spectral type XX, magnitude YY, and distance ZZ....star 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)
- Like this.
- 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 was surprised to see /si/ as the pronunciation of the first syllable. Wiktionary has either /kae/ or /tʃɛ/, either of which would make more sense to me. Are there "official" pronunciations, or is this simply one editor's choice? --Lasunncty (talk) 09:11, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Congratulations to all the contributors to this featured article. You deserve a lot of applause, recognition and appreciation. What a wonderful article.

- Hi Bfpage, The main improver was StringTheory11 - a few of us have been systematically improving constellation articles, the latest two that have not yet passed FAC are Corona Borealis and Serpens. Any feedback WRT readability from a layperson on either or both of them would be much appreciated (to see if you think they are as good as this one). cheers, Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 00:12, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
