Question: Do we have recorded emissions from all the major stars in the zodiac? – Toby
Answer: As the zodiac is comprised of the 13 constellations through which the Sun’s path in the sky travels over one year, and these stars tend to be rather bright, the answer is very likely yes. These measurements would likely be comprised of both intensity and spectral measurements, proving information on the age and type of star.
