The Great Celestial Dog in a Deep Nightscape Scene

| | | |

A deep nightscape image shows the Great Celestial Dog. Entirely framed in the scene, Canis Major constellation is shining bright above the top of Pampilhosa da Serra hill, in Dark Sky® Aldeias do Xisto, Portugal. Canis Major features the brightest star visible from Earth (Northern and Southern Hemisphere), with a magnitude of -1.46, contains the first white dwarf star discovered, Sirius B. For being so bright, we can easily distinguish its blueish color with unaided eye. In many cultures, Sirius was used as a time marker for harvesting and celebration, and an important marker in the ancient Egyptian calendar. At a distance of 8.7 light years, Sirius is the fifth nearest star system. The image was captured with vixen Polarie star tracker and the featured result comprises a stack of 10 single shots to improve the view of the deepest details on this nighscape scene.

Canis Major apresenta a estrela mais brilhante visível da Terra (hemisfério Norte e Sul), com magnitude de -1,46, contém a primeira estrela anã branca descoberta, Sirius B. Por ser tão brilhante, podemos facilmente distinguir a sua cor azulada a olho nu.

A uma distância de 8,7 anos-luz, Sirius é o quinto sistema estelar mais próximo.
