Constellation Hummingbird (kolÌb.)

The Hummingbird was named by early European explorers who sailed the southern oceans, along with the Bridge, the Elephant, the Flamingo, the Ivory Tower, the Jaguar, the Kangaroo, the Loom and Shuttle, the Seal, the Shark, and the Thimble.

It is looking towards the north while hovering over a daffodil, drinking nectar. It is part of what we call Pavo, the peacock.

The 23 naked-eye stars

In the ‘Our designation’ column, letters (sometimes with superscript numbers) in front of constellation symbols refer to Bayer’s catalogue or to variable star designations, and numbers to Flamsteed’s catalogue. Row colours roughly approximate the stars’ colours. The links lead to the stars’ entries in the SIMBAD Astronomical Database.
