Narrative

Îlot rocheux situé au sud de l'île Le Mauguen (anciennement Alexis-Carrel) et à l'ouest du nunatak du Bon-Docteur, dans l'archipel de Pointe-Géologie ; nom donné par analogie des contours grossiers de l'îlot avec la forme de la constellation, et en raison de sa situation par rapport à la base Dumont-d'Urville. Toponyme non retenu sur une carte marine classique, mais pouvant présenter un intérêt scientifique ou patrimonial.
