    Meaning of Aludra

    Post by Aludra on Mon Sep 27, 2010 3:57 pm

    Eta Canis Majoris (η CMa, η Canis Majoris) is a star in the constellation Canis Major. It has the traditional name Aludra.

    Aludra shines brightly in the skies in spite of a large distance from Earth due to being intrinsically many times brighter (absolute magnitude) than the Sun. A blue supergiant, Aludra has only been around a fraction of the time our Sun has, yet is already in the last stages of its life. It is still expanding and may be becoming a red supergiant, or perhaps has already passed that phase, but in either case it will become a supernova within the next few million years.

    The name Aludra originates from the Arabic: عذرا al-‘aðrā "the virgin". In ancient times Arabic astrologers/astronomers referred to a group of four stars in the Canis Major constellation, also known as the "Greater Dog", as Al 'Adhara "the virgins".

    η Canis Majoris is classified as an Alpha Cygni type variable star and its brightness varies from magnitude +2.38 to +2.48.

    You DO know what your name means in Japanese, right? O.o

    If yes, please don't for the sake of the still "naive" (xP) underage people on the forum.

    BTW, so Aludra is actually a constellation O.o I've heard the latin name before, but this is interesting too! Thanks for the info Smile

    Don't underestimate Google Translate , Tyann. Nothing can be hidden on the internetz!

    Even if you don't translate it, you put in a parenthesis (a man) xD
