Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky – its modern name comes from the Ancient Greek Seirios („glowing“ or „scorcher“). It is actually another one of those binary stars, a white star and a white dwarf. Like Procyon, its nearness to Earth makes it much brighter in the night sky than many other stars. It is brighter than our sun, but dimmer than Rigel and Canopus.
