Canis Minor is a small constellation close just north of the equator. In greek mythology Canis Minor does not have a clear link to any one story or being a dog for that matter but has a accusation with Canis Major. The constellation is most easily seen from mid- winter into spring. The most noticeable thing is the bright star Procyon, which also can be seen during daytime through a telescope.
