Pavo is a constellation in the southern sky. Its name is Latin for peacock. It is one of twelve constellations created by Petrus Plancius from the observations of Pieter Dirkszoon Keyser and Frederick de Houtman and it first appeared on a 35-cm diameter celestial globe published in 1597 (or 1598) in Amsterdam by Plancius with Jodocus Hondius. The first depiction of this constellation in a celestial atlas was in Johann Bayer’s Uranometria of 1603.
In Australia, part of Pavo is sometimes called “the Saucepan” when it is used as a guide to finding the south by the stars.
The most notable star in the constellation is δ Pavonis, a nearby Sun-like but more evolved star. φ Pavonis, another Sun-like star has an unconfirmed extrasolar planet.
USS Pavo (AK-139) was a United States Navy Crater class cargo ship named after the constellation.
