Canis Minor is a small constellation you can find up and left from Orion. It is not far from Canis Major, and both constellations have a very bright star each. I would say Canis Minor and Canis Major had been set in ancient times just to give home to Procyon and Sirius respectively.
Procyon is a small star that appears to be big because it is very close to us (11 light years) in comparison to other stars. However, it is bigger than our Sun. It is “married” to Procyon B, which is a white dwarf. This companion is probably preventing Procyon from being home to living beings, because it makes impossible having planets with stable orbits within Procyon’s habitable zone.
The other easy to spot star in Canis Minoris is Gomeisa.
