Puppis is a constellation in the southern sky. Puppis, the Poop Deck, was part of an over-large constellation, the ship of Jason and the Argonauts, Argo Navis, which centuries after its initial description, was divided into three parts, the other two being Carina, Vela. Puppis is the largest of the three constellations in square degrees, it is one of the 88 modern constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union. Argo Navis was sub-divided into three sections in 1752 by the French astronomer Nicolas Louis de Lacaille, including Argûs in puppi. Despite the division, Lacaille kept a single set of Bayer designations for the whole constellation Argo. Therefore, Carina has the α, β, ε, Vela has γ and δ, Puppis has ζ, so on. In the 19th century, these three sections of Argo became established as separate constellations and were formally included in the list of 88 modern IAU constellations in 1930. Several extrasolar planet systems have been found around stars in the constellation Puppis, including: On July 1, 2003, a planet was found orbiting the star HD 70642.

This planetary system is much like Jupiter with a long-period. On May 17, 2006, HD 69830 was discovered to have three Neptune-mass planets, the first multi-planetary system without any Jupiter-like or Saturn-like planets; the star hosts an asteroid belt at the region between middle planet to outer planet. On June 21, 2007, the first extrasolar planet found in the open cluster NGC 2423, was discovered around the red giant star NGC 2423-3; the planet is orbits at 2.1 AU distance. On September 22, 2008, two Jupiter-like planets were discovered around HD 60532. HD 60532 b has a minimum mass of 1.03 MJ and orbits at 0.759 AU and takes 201.3 days to complete the orbit. HD 60532 c has a minimum mass of 2.46 MJ and orbits at 1.58 AU and takes 604 days to complete the orbit. As the Milky Way runs through Puppis, there are a large number of open clusters in the constellation. M46 and M47 are two open clusters in the same binocular field. M47 can be seen with the naked eye under dark skies, its brightest stars are 6th magnitude.

Messier 93 is another open cluster somewhat to the south. NGC 2451 is a bright open cluster containing the star c Puppis, the near NGC 2477 is a good target for small telescopes; the star Pi Puppis is the main component of a bright group of stars known as Collinder 135. M46 is a circular open cluster with an overall magnitude of 6.1 at a distance of 5400 light-years from Earth. The planetary nebula NGC 2438 is superimposed. M46 is classified as a Trumpler class III 2 m cluster; this means. However, it is not at its center; the cluster's stars, numbering between 50 and 100, have a moderate range in brightness.

Dog Salmon River

The Dog Salmon River is a 70-mile tributary of the Ugashik River in the U. S. state of Alaska. Beginning on the flanks of Mount Kialagvik, it flows northwest through the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge to meet the larger river 4 miles southwest of Ugashik, at the head of Ugashik Bay, an arm of Bristol Bay, it descends to the upper reaches of the bay from an elevation of 981 feet in a valley of the Aleutian Range between Mount Chiginagak and Mount Kialagvik. Among its feeder streams are Figure Eight and Wandering creeks, it is not navigable. The streambed is a mix of gravel and mud, with its milky glacier headwaters growing muddy as it progresses. There are many rivers in Alaska bearing the name Dog Salmon River and this river should not be confused with those located on the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta or eastern Norton Sound; as its name suggests, the river hosts large numbers of Chum Salmon along with smaller numbers of Pink Salmon and Dolly Varden char.
