Astro-English: from Astronese, the word stellation makes use of the word stellar denoting “stars” or “the astronomical world as a whole”, thus adapts this word through the use of the suffix -tion to denote “an action”, altogether conveying a broad meaning of “an action relating to or involving the astronomical world.”
