Sirius  # 0341

Sirius     

Sirius was first seen in 1982 when his mother Fringe introduced him to the feeding grounds of Massachusetts Bay.  This area made such an impression on him that he has returned just about every year since. Sirius is the second known calf of Fringe (See Fringe's Family Tree). Fringe has one of the most successful known lineages among today's humpback whalesi.

Sirius was named for the dominant white spot in the center of his tail.  It reminds people of the Dog Star (aka Sirius), the brightest star in the heavens.  It is located in the constellation Canis Major.  The star Sirius is a white star which is 1.6 times our sun's diameter.  Its brightness is due to the fact that we are seeing a double star.  The companion star is Sirius B also known as "the pup".  In Ancient Greek times, the Canis Major was usually seen as one of Orion's two hunting dogs.  Sirius (the star) forms the nose of Canis Major.
