Welcome to the 365 Days of Astronomy. I’m Avivah, your host today. I’m going to tell a story from Korea about Canopus or Alpha Carinae, the brightest star in the constellation of Carina and the second-brightest star in the night sky.
This is the story of the Monk’s Star, compiled by Yong Bok Lee for the Stars of Asia Project in 2009 as part of the International Year of Astronomy project.
