During Starlight Celebration Event (for Christmas 2005), there were 7 Rare/Ex christmas cards that could be obtained. They were: Aldebaran Card, Betelgeuse Card, Canopus Card, Capella Card, Pleiades Card, Rigel Card, Sirius Card. All of these cards are named after some of the brightest stars in the night sky and most of which are visible in the evening hours in December. Most of the stars form the Winter Hexagon asterism, a giant hexagon formed from the brighest stars around at that time of year (Aldebaran, Capella, Pollux, Procyon, Rigel, Sirius). Procyon and Pollux are not included in these cards. Most of the stars form the Summer Hexagon in the Southern Hemisphere, with Canopus replacing Capella.
Capella (Alpha Aurigae) is a star in the Auriga constellation (the charioteer). It is one of the brightest stars in the nighttime sky. Auriga is a star of spectral type G5 (yellow). It is 1 of 6 stars making up the Winter Hexagon asterism (the others are Aldebaran, Pollux, Procyon, Rigel, Sirius). Capella is Latin for "little she-goat", believed to represent Amaltheia, the goat that suckled Jupiter/Zeus and was the source for the Cornucopia. In Medieval astrology, Capella predicted military honors and wealth.
