Sirius, from the Hubble TelescopeI had another late night last night.  But I got a chance to see the magnificent Dog Star, Sirius (Alpha Canis Majoris), the brightest star in the night sky.  Its light was dancing radiantly over the tree tops, mostly blue and white, but with flashes of gold.  A gorgeous fire!

The “Dog Star” is special to me.  Why?  Because I’m one of the Domini canes (“The Lord’s dogs”)!

I saw some other stars scattered about, but don’t know which.  I’ll have to reacquaint myself with the star charts.

After that, I slept well!  Seeing stars is like seeing old friends!
