Purpose

This template provides a standardized infobox for the 88 IAU recognized constellations; the modern constellations used in modern-day science.

Usage

{{Infobox constellation
| name = <!-- IAU constellation name -->
| abbreviation = <!-- IAU three letter abbreviation -->
| genitive = <!-- genitive form of the constellation,
                  as used in Bayer or Flamsteed designations -->
| pronounce = <!-- pronunciation -->
| symbolism = <!-- symbolic meaning of the constellation -->
| RA = {{RA}} – {{RA}} <!-- right ascension range -->
| dec = {{DEC}} – {{DEC}} <!-- declination range -->
| (deprecated, won't appear) family = <!-- constellation family -->
| (deprecated) quadrant = <!-- galactic quadrant -->
| areatotal =
| arearank =
| numbermainstars = <!-- A count of the Bayer or Flamsteed designated stars that are
                         connected by line segments on the IAU's constellation map -->
| numberbfstars = <!-- The number of stars with Bayer or Flamsteed designations
                       in the constellation -->
| numberstarsplanets = X (Y with candidates)
                       <!-- X being the number of stars with confirmed planets,
                            Y being the number of stars with solid candidate planets
                            without confirmed planets -->
| numberbrightstars = <!-- Number of stars with an apparent magnitude less than ~=3
                           ( apparent magnitude < 3 ) -->
| numbernearbystars = <!-- Number of stars that are closer than 10pc
                           ( distance < 10 parsecs ) -->
| brighteststarname = <!-- the star with the brightest apparent magnitude
                           ( usually this would be "α genitive" ) -->
| starmagnitude =
| neareststarname =
| stardistance =
| numbermessierobjects =
| meteorshowers =
| bordering =
| latmax =
| latmin =
| month =

Parameters

  • name(Mandatory) — The name of the constellation, as defined by the IAU
  • abbreviation(Mandatory) — The three letter IAU abbreviation for the constellation
  • genitive(Mandatory) — The genetive form of the constellation's name used in the construction of star names in Bayer designations and Flamsteed designations
  • pronounce(Optional) — The pronunciation of the constellation's name, and the genitive form. Please use the IPA and optionally respelling.
|pronounce=
;Name
* {{IPAc-en|IPA}} {{respell|respelling}}
;Genitive
* {{IPAc-en|IPA}} {{respell|respelling}}
  • symbolism(Optional) — the meaning of the constellation
ie. Draco, is "the dragon", so fill in as the dragon
  • RA and dec -- coordinates of the constellation
    • RA – (Mandatory)right ascension, use the {{RA}} or {{Deg2HMS}} template to fill in this parameter
      the right ascension of the lower and upper extremes of the constellation
    • dec – (Mandatory)declination, use the {{DEC}} template to fill in this parameter
      the declination of the lower and upper extremes of the constellation
  • liststyle(Optional) — style for included lists; default is plain, hlist for horizontal and flatlist for bulleted.
