Where can I find details about the constellations and night sky characteristics of Toril? Is this information presented in any of the released books?

There's nothing published that I'm aware of. I have a reasonably good knowledge of the Forgotten Realms material presented in Living Forgotten Realms modules, and I don't know of any night sky material there, either.

Candlekeep has an unofficial article about the subject, which is based on official material. There is also a comprehensive discussion thread here, with links to a few visual resources and much discussion of Selune.

Thanks. Do you have some guess about the reason behind this lack of information ? I had the need for planetary and constellation details for a quest involving time and alignments, but I had to invent everything from scratch, basically. – Stefano Borini Aug 27 '10 at 17:52
I got nothing. The Realms aren't the only setting missing this particular flavor of detail, though. Maybe game designers don't look up much... – Bryant Aug 27 '10 at 17:58
