The constellators are a pair of stars in the constellation Draco that have been the subject of a great deal of interest in recent years.
Both stars are thought to be very faint, less than a tenth of the mass of our sun, but astronomers have been able to spot them using high-powered telescopes in the southern hemisphere.
The Southern Hemisphere Constellations are very faint and very faint indeed, but they are also extremely well-known and the Southern Hemisphere has a large number of them.
The Southern Hemisphere constellation Draco is the brightest star in this constellation and is the closest of all the constellational pairs to the Sun.
A number of astronomers are convinced that the Southern Hemispheres stars have the potential to be some of the brightest stars in our galaxy.
“The Southern Hemisphere constellates are faintest and have the smallest mass.
They have a much smaller luminosity than our Sun.
They are very hot and have very little gravity.
They may have an atmosphere that is similar to Jupiter’s,” said Dr Muthu Madhavan, professor of astronomy at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru.
The stars in this pair of constellatio are named for the constellation of Draco, a planet, because the two stars are both the brightest ones in the Southern hemisphere.
Draco has been discovered in the South Pacific by the Japanese explorer Sushil Chatterjee and later discovered in Antarctica by the explorer Edmund Hillary.
The star is about a thousand times brighter than our sun and orbits Draco every three years.
It is one of the closest constellio pairs in our solar system.
Dr Madhavans research into the stars has been funded by the Indian government.
“The Southern hemispheres are very rare.
It was estimated that there are about 20 000 Southern Hemisthenes stars in space, but no one knows how many of these are real,” he said.
