Difference between Constellation and Hipparcos

Constellation vs. Hipparcos

A constellation is a group of stars that are considered to form imaginary outlines or meaningful patterns on the celestial sphere, typically representing animals, mythological people or gods, mythological creatures, or manufactured devices. Hipparcos was a scientific satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA), launched in 1989 and operated until 1993.

Similarities between Constellation and Hipparcos

Constellation and Hipparcos have 11 things in common (in Unionpedia): Astrometry, Celestial sphere, Ecliptic, Epoch (astronomy), Hipparchus, Hyades (star cluster), Millennium Star Atlas, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Pleiades, Proper motion, Radial velocity.


Astrometry is the branch of astronomy that involves precise measurements of the positions and movements of stars and other celestial bodies.

Celestial sphere

In astronomy and navigation, the celestial sphere is an abstract sphere with an arbitrarily large radius concentric to Earth.

Epoch (astronomy)

In astronomy, an epoch is a moment in time used as a reference point for some time-varying astronomical quantity, such as the celestial coordinates or elliptical orbital elements of a celestial body, because these are subject to perturbations and vary with time.

Millennium Star Atlas

The Millennium Star Atlas was constructed as a collaboration between a team at Sky & Telescope led by Roger Sinnott, and the European Space Agency's Hipparcos project, led by Michael Perryman.

Proper motion

Proper motion is the astronomical measure of the observed changes in the apparent places of stars or other celestial objects in the sky, as seen from the center of mass of the Solar System, compared to the abstract background of the more distant stars.
