Canis Major constellation from Johannes Hevelius' Prodromus astronomiae, Firmamentum Sobiescianum, sive Uranographia, 1687. Hevelius' star atlas is unique among the Grand Atlases in choosing to depict the constellations as they would appear on a globe, that is, from the outside looking in, rather than from a geocentric point of view. Canis Major (Latin for 'greater dog'), and is commonly represented as one of the dogs following Orion the hunter.
