Venus and Sirius shine from a spectacularly clear sky this morning during twilight.  Venus is making its way through the dim stars of Cancer. It is to the lower right of the Gemini Twins – Castor and Pollux.

Sirius, the brightest nighttime star, is beneath Orion and its bright stars Betelgeuse and Rigel.

Three stars – Betelgeuse, Procyon, and Sirius – make the Winter Triangle.  These stars are prominent in the evening sky during the winter months in the northern hemisphere.
