Firstly it is one of the closest stars to the Earth at 8. It is almost twice the size of the Sun but shines an incredible 25 times brighter than the Sun. The next brightest star is called Canopus or, to give it its Arabic name, Sohail. Canopus is just too far south to be easily seen from Spain; the only place it can be viewed is from the very southernmost point of Spain near Fuengirola but even from here it just about manages to rise above the horizon.
You may have noticed that the castle at Fuengirola is called castle Sohail named after the star.
Sohail is light years away but is a massive 65 times bigger than the Sun and an incredible 13, times brighter. Sirius dominates the sky throughout the winter months rising in the east at around 7pm and is due south at around midnight in the constellation of Canis Major, the Great Dog. If you need any help in finding it, first locate Orion with his distinctive hourglass shape and then follow the three stars in his belt down toward the horizon until you meet Sirius.
