You might want to edit your post. The one and only star in our solar system (and therefore the brightest) is the Sun.

Sirius and Canopus are in our our galaxy, the Milky Way, not in our solar system (fortunately, or we'd all be toast!)

We are responsible for the health of the planet - not it for ours

Seventeen Million Minks will be killed in Denmark because of a theory about the spread of Germ Warfare Covid-19.

Suppose you walked the Larapinta Trail every two weeks. In just under seven years you would have walked as far as the circumference of the earth.

After reading this thread, several seconds of my life were lost never to be regained.
Nothing to see here.

They would have been lost anyway. At least this thread supplied a minimal possibility that there would also be a gain (learning something).
