Since late 2013 BRITE satellites gather observations of bright stars. I will characterise the sample of over 400 stars observed up-to-now by BRITE-Constellation. In particular, I will discuss the location of observed stars in the H-R diagram, their brightness, and variability. Some general conclusions from this statistics will also be presented.

Mode of presentation need to be confirmed by the SOC
