  • Initially defined by the IAU in 1958, the Galactic coordinate system was thereafter transformed in 1984 from the B1950.0 FK4-based system to the J2000.0 FK5-based system. In 1994, the IAU recommended that the dynamical reference system FK5 be replaced by the ICRS, which is a kinematical non-rotating system defined by a set of remote radio sources. However the definition of the Galactic coordinate system was not updated at that time. We consider that the present Galactic coordinates may be… CONTINUE READING
