Is There A German Word For Celestial? Is there a German word for things relating to the sky, stars, sun, moon etc? In English it’s the word celestial. I know there’s Himmelisch, but I’m not sure if that word has more of a religious, heavenly connotation. Thank you for any help!

'Celestial' means Himmels-, e.g. Himmelskoerper, celestial bodies. Himmlisch means 'wonderful', depending on the context either in a secular or religious sense. Astronomisch means astronomical.
