Cancer zodens constellation has been spotted in the southern sky and is being closely tracked by the internet’s most popular astrophotographer.
The constellation is named after the constellation Cancer, which has been a subject of fascination since it was discovered in 1696.
“Its a bit of a shame it doesn’t have a constellation name, its an interesting constellation,” astrophotographers from the University of Western Australia (UWA) said in a statement.
“It’s the only one that’s got a full moon and is in the Southern Hemisphere, which is why it is being tracked by astrophotography.”
The constellation has a full Moon and is located in the constellation Pisces, which means ‘fairy wing’ in Latin.
“The Pisces constellation is a symbol of rebirth, a symbol for renewal, rebirth and regeneration,” Dr Sarah Leckie said.
“This is the same constellation where the famous image of Cancer was taken.”
“The image of the Cancer zODS constellation is one of the most beautiful celestial images in the world.”
“Its also a symbol associated with the rebirth of humanity and its a really good constellation to look at.”
Dr Leckies research into the zodiac constellations has led to her creating a calendar of the zoden stars.
“If you look at the stars and the planets, you can see how they have been aligned in the past and you can also see the zodiak constellation,” she said.
A video from the NASA Astrobiology website shows the zoda, which in Greek means ‘star’, being photographed in the night sky.
“I’ve found that a lot of people are looking for a zodiacal constellation for their birthday and the zODs constellation has just been chosen for me by a very large number of people,” Dr Lecky said.
The zodiac zodiac has a history of being an important part of the human psyche.
“For thousands of years people have been using the zods constellational chart to chart the planets in their lives, to plan their birthdays and to help guide their lives in the afterlife,” Dr Kiley said.
