In astronomy and navigation, the celestial sphere is an abstract sphere that has an arbitrarily large radius and is concentric to Earth. All objects in the sky can be conceived as being projected upon the inner surface of the celestial sphere, which may be centered on Earth or the observer. If centered on the observer, half of the sphere would resemble a hemispherical screen over the observing location. The celestial spheres, or celestial orbs, were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Eudoxus, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus, and others. Since it was believed that the fixed stars did not change their positions relative to one another. The ecliptic is the plane of Earth's orbit around the Sun. From the perspective of an observer on Earth, the Sun's movement around the celestial sphere over the course of a year traces out a path along the ecliptic against the background of stars. The ecliptic is an important reference plane and is the basis of the ecliptic coordinate system. Because of the movement of Earth around the EarthMoon center of mass, the apparent path of the Sun wobbles slightly, with a period of about one month. wg33 ecliptic the celestial sphere.

The celestial sphere is tipped relative to the observer in the same way as is the Earth. The extension of the Earth's rotation axis to the sky defines the North and South Celestial Poles the NCP and SCP, while the extension of the Earth's equatorial plane defines the celestial equator. The NCP is in the constellation Ursa Minor the Smaller Bear close to the direction of the star Polaris, otherwise called the North Star. As the Sun traverses the ecliptic path, it appears to move against a band of 12 ancient constellations called the Zodiac, which are given in traditional order are shown below.

This large circle on the celestial sphere belongs to the same plane as the terrestrial equator on Earth and is inclined at about 23 from the ecliptic. North Celestial Pole. This is the northernmost point in the sky around which all the stars seem to turn, also called Pole Star , or Polaris. This is the trajectory drawn by the Sun on the celestial sphere. Spring Equinox. When the Sun is at the point of intersection between the celestial equator and the ecliptic in the northern hemisphere, it is said to be at the vernal point. At this point occurs the March equinox, or vernal. Path of the Sun on the celestial sphere as seen from Earth. Apparent line that separates earth from sky. Celestial Meridian. An imaginary great circle on the celestial sphere. An internationally defined area of the celestial sphere. These areas are grouped around asterisms, patterns formed by prominent stars within apparent proximity to one another on Earth's night sky. Celestial Equator. A great circle on the imaginary celestial sphere, in the same plane as the Earth's equator. In other words, it is a projection of the terrestrial equator out into space. As a result of the Earth's axial tilt, the celestial equator is inclined by 23. 4 with respect to the ecliptic plane
