The modern constellation of
Monoceros, the Unicorn, lies east of Orion (his belt visible at lower
right) and above Sirius (the bright star at bottom left). None of the
stars have proper names. The luminary, Beta Mon, lies up and
to the left of Gamma Mon, the somewhat orange-colored star that
is somewhat pointed to by the Belt. Alpha Mon is at the left-hand
edge a bit above center. The constellation continues a bit
to the east (left). The famed Rosette Nebula is the reddish
circular patch toward the upper right. Plaskett's Star is the brighter of the
two just above the Rosette, the hot star 15 = S Mon
is up and to the right of the Rosette, near the upper right hand
corner, Epsilon (8) Mon is just down and to the right of the nebula, and
13 Mon is just up and to the right of it. 10 Mon is up and to the right of Beta.
7 Mon is to the left of Gamma.
