Astronomy Pronunciation Guide
Some astronomical names can be a little difficult to pronounce. For example, the constellation Boötes is pronounced "boo-OH-tees" not "Boots" or "Booties". In some cases careful pronunciation may be necessary to avoid embarrassment as in the case of Uranus, which is pronounced "Yoor-a-nus", not "Your-anus".
The pronunciation guide will help you learn how to correctly pronounce the names of hundreds of celestial objects from different categories such as stars, constellations and planets.
