- ‘One technique, known as astrometry, involves precisely measuring the position of a star.’
- ‘In this way, astronomers will perform very precise astrometry to detect the reflex motion of stars due to orbiting planets.’
- ‘And while methods such as photometry and astrometry, which hold great promise in the long term, are still being perfected, other innovative approaches are already yielding results.’

- ‘The main branches are astrometry, celestial mechanics, and astrophysics.’
