Thanks for the feedback!
nearly all heavenly bodies that can observed by the naked eye can be used for navigation.... assuming you can identify the body of course!

The term "celestial bodies" refers to all of the objects in space that are identified by name or location: comets, asteroids, moons, rings, planets, stars, nebulas, galaxies, …and any other material structure seen or detected in space. The term "celestial body" is usually not used to refer to meteoroids and small space debris. It does not apply to the individual tiny particles in rings, or to the solar wind, or to any energy phenomena.
Basically anything that is found in outer space. Celestial body or more commonly known as "astronomical objects" are significant physical entities, associations or structures …which science has confirmed to exist in outer space. See link for a list of objects
It revolves the celestial body.
It will either be called a Binary star system, where two stars orbit each other, or a planetary system where non-stellar objects (non-star objects like planets, comets, astero…ids, etc) orbit a star.
Syzygy. Edit: I like that answer. It looks like one those "joke" words people like write on this site, but it's the correct answer. Actually I've only ever seen it used about …the Earth, Sun, and one other body, especially the Moon. "Spell check" doesn't like it.
If you ask me ill answer constellations.star clusters and other unencuded heavenly bodies.
When you are talking about the sun, the earth and the moon, the 3 bodies in alignment is called an eclipse (solar eclipse if the moon is between the earth and the sun and a …lunar eclipse if the earth is between the moon and the sun). When you are talking about planets then the alignment of 3 bodies is known as a conjunction .
Celestial body is only a general name for an object in the sky,particlarly applied to the night sky (but including the Sun). Themoon, stars, planets, etc., are considered cele…stial bodies. Most of them were identified by the ancients; in modern times themore distant planets from Earth were discovered by use of morepowerful telescopes.
A celestial body simply refers to an object in space, such as theMoon, the Sun, stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae, etc.
Usually the Moon (Earth's) is said to orbit Earth, although thelatter is sometimes not regarded as a celestial body per se. Thereare also arguments based on the nature of the …lunar orbit that itis actually co-orbiting the Sun along with the Earth, that Earthand our moon simply share an orbit.
The true shadow where the celestial body completely blocks thelight source (such as a total eclipse of the sun as viewed fromEarth) is called the umbra. The partial shadow, fo…r example if onlya part of the limb of the body blocks the sun (like a partial solareclipse) is called the penumbra.
