The Celestial Ball was a ball held at Hogwarts at some point in the 1987–1988 school year. All attendees were required to wear formal clothing and the student committee was responsible for the decorations.[1]


Decorations for the Celestial Ball underway

After Albus Dumbledore's announcement for the ball and the election for the head of the decorating committee, two candidates, Penny Haywood and Emily Tyler, showed interests in the position, with the former wanting "Stars" as the theme of the ball, whereas the latter pitched for "Planets". Emily Tyler resorted to criticising Haywood and her ways, while Penny did not try to decry her opponent but instead, tried to convince all the students that she would do well as the head of the decorating committee. She took the help of Jacob's sibling to get elected. Haywood eventually won the election that was held in the Hogwarts Library. Penny Haywood, along with her group of friends, Jacob's sibling, Tulip Karasu, Nymphadora Tonks, and Barnaby Lee, proceeded to make the decorations for the ball in the Charms Classroom, with Filius Flitwick's permission.[1]

The dance

Jacob's sibling attended the ball with an undisclosed student. There were a lot of dances and refreshments. Rubeus Hagrid was there, with Jacob's sibling noticing that he's "got some moves". Even Argus Filch, despite his dislike of festivities, and Ben Copper, despite his nervous nature, were in attendance. Merula Snyde enjoyed watching everyone else, while Tulip Karasu marvelled at the starry backdrop. Bill Weasley asked out Emily Tyler during the course of the ball, but she rejected his offer. As the dancing came to a conclusion, Jacob's sibling thanked their date for coming with them, a gratitude which was mutual.
