A faint constellation created by French astronomer Pierre Charles Le Monnier. It is also known as Renne. He created the constellation to honor his stay in Lapland. The constellation is located in the northern sky, next to the other obsolete constellation of Custos Messium, the harvest-keeper. It can be found between the official constellations of Cepheus, the king, and Camelopardus, the giraffe. Tarandus vel Rangifer is no longer recognized by astronomers and does not appear on modern star charts.
