Then Kyon was joined by Prokyon (before the Dog), a constellation with only two stars. Known as the place to find the night's brightest star, Sirius, the constellation is called the “great dog”. Sirius is thus known as the “dog star”. Easily located in the night sky close to the Orion constellation, Canis contains five stars of 3rd magnitude or brighter. The “lesser dog” Canis Minor with its bright star Procyon is nearby.
