Now appearing in a darker sky, Sirius joins the bright stars in the eastern sky. The sky’s brightest star is now past its heliacal rising. The Winter Triangle – Sirius, Betelgeuse, and Procyon – is easy to locate. Betelgeuse is visible with Rigel, stars in Orion. Farther north, the stars of Gemini – Castor and Pollux are visible.
