Tone[edit]

The flier says "the tone of this article may not be appropriate", but it looks OK to me.

a relative clause and a parenthetical comma[edit]

Constellations with no alpha include Vela and Puppis, formerly part of Argo Navis, whose alpha is Canopus in Carina.

I like it better without the new comma after "Navis"; paired commata look like a parenthesis, so the reader could see it as

Constellations with no alpha include Vela and Puppis (formerly part of Argo Navis) whose alpha is Canopus in Carina.
