Name:
Named in 1895 by Stens Anders Hjalmar Sjögren in honor of Anders Celsius [November 27, 1701 Uppsala, Sweden - April 25, 1744 Uppsala, Sweden], Swedish astronomer, physicist, and naturalist. He had the Astronomical Observatory built and he experimented with standardizing temperature measurements and the Celsius temperature scale is also named in his honor.
