Another Canis Major star with a special relationship to Sirius is a 2nd-magnitude sun that's not part of the Southern Canis Triangle of Adhara, Delta ([delta]) Canis Majoris (Wezen), and Eta ([eta]) Canis Majoris (Aludra).
"EZ Canis Majoris is responsible for creating the bubble of Sh2-308 - the star threw off its outer layers to create the strands visible here.
VY Canis Majoris is some 4,500 light-years from Earth and could explode as a supernova at any time.
So, one can say that life's origins really begin in chemistry around objects like VY Canis Majoris."
Epsilon Canis Majoris, a star about 600 light-years from Earth in the constellation Canis Major is much hotter than the sun and about 30,000 times as bright, seems to lose mass as atoms are blown off the top of its atmosphere by 600 mile-per-second gales, Cassinelli indicates.
The face-on barred spiral NGC 2217 lies almost 3[degrees] due north of the wide double star Zeta (C) Canis Majoris. The inner portion of the galaxy consists of a prominent bar and tightly wound arms surrounded by a large faint "ring." You shouldn't have too much difficulty picking up the core and elongated bar with a moderately sized telescope; a larger instrument, under good, dark skies, may net you the delicate outer ring.
Another 4[degrees] slide to the east-southeast will bring you to Collinder 121 (Cr 121), a loose association dominated by [Omicron.sup.1] ([[omicron].sup.1]) Canis Majoris (Stop 3).
A tenant of the Astronomical League's Herschel 400 observing program, NCC 2204 is an open cluster found 1.8[degrees] west-southwest of Beta ([beta]) Canis Majoris. Through my 105-mm refractor at 17x, I see a misty glow with a 10th-magnitude star on the west-southwestern edge and a 9th-magnitude star closely guarding the north-northwestern edge.
That's not the main attraction, however; that's the bright 4.4-magnitude star Tau Canis Majoris near the center of the cluster.
Let's begin our Collinder quest at Delta () Canis Majoris. Delta is situated in a nice binocular field featuring a curving row of stars that partially encircles it to the southeast.
Low in the southwest, perhaps 2,500 light-years distant, is the Canis Major Association (Collinder 121), which includes 2nd-magnitude Delta ([delta]) and Eta ([eta]) Canis Majoris as well as 3rd- and 4th-magnitude [Omicron.sup.1] ([[omicron].sup.1]), [Omicron.sup.2] ([[omicron].sup.2]), and Sigma ([sigma]) Canis Majoris.
Were I to pick one object that epitomizes a neglected wonder, it would be this lovely double 2[degrees] from the Tau Canis Majoris cluster.
