The Board of Directors of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) are pleased to announce that the RASC has purchased SkyNews Incorporated.
SkyNews Inc. has published SkyNews magazine since 1999. SkyNews Inc. also owns SkyNews.ca and publishes a monthly e-newsletter. SkyNews is the Canadian magazine for amateur astronomers and is the only popular, English-language science magazine for adults published in Canada.
Portrayed in the sky as Canis Major and Canis Minor, Orion the Hunter is not the only one owning pets. Canes Venatici is associated to Bootes the Herdman and can be located high in the sky and below the handle of the Big Dipper. However unlike most of the constellations we encounter, Canes does not possess and asterism except for line connecting Cor Caroli to Chara and yet it is the 38th constellation in area with 465 square degrees of sky.
