Reading another great story from Clark Ashton Smith, I would like to clarify the following (for the context, Melchior is an amateur astronomer).
In especial, Melchior was drawn by one minute wide-flung constellation south of the Milky Way.
WHat exactly does the one minute wide-flung part mean? I guess "minute" here could be used as an adjective but that still does not help me with understanding it precisely. I guess "minute" here is not meant in terms of degrees, as one would be probably too few.
