Relative Galactic Position of Caelum

Viewed relative to the Galaxy as a whole, Caelum's sparseness is easy to understand: it describes a slice of sky that looks out into empty intergalactic space.

Caelum is a small and inoffensive constellation that might most kindly be described as 'sparse'. Only four stars are visible without optical aid, and none of these exceed fourth magnitude.
