We introduce canonical points and lines for the hyperbolic parabola in Universal Hyperbolic Geometry, and explicit formulas for them in standard coordinates. Quite a few remarkable collinearities result, with the duality of the twin parabola playing a major role. We also introduce the curious Y-conic which is homologous to the parabola, and contains many interesting meets.
Keywords: Hyperbolic geometry, projective geometry, universal geometry, hyperbolic parabola.
