CANIS MINOR AND GEMINI

Canis Minor (the Smaller Dog) is a simple two-star figure seen here to the left of Gemini, which is easily recognizable by the twin stars Pollux and Castor at its top. (They are to the right of center near the edge; Pollux is the one on the left). The brightest star in the photograph, seen to the upper left of center, is Procyon of Canis Minor. Gomeisa, the Beta star in the constellation, is just down and to the right from Procyon. Procyon is at the northeast apex of the Winter Triangle.
