Move your mouse over the picture below to see constellation lines. This is an easy series of constellations to remember. You have Canis Major, the big dog, on the left. Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, shines brightly in the dog. The dog follows Orion, the hunter. The hunter is after the Taurus, the bull.
HAS images above from Jan 3, 2006, about 2:00 a.m. local time. Fixed tripod, Nikon D100, 30 seconds, ISO 1600, Sigma 14mm lens at f3.5.
