Calendar Food for Thought Image of the Week Friday, January 19 Sirius twinkles brightly below Orion in the southeast. Sometime around 8 p.m., depending on your location, Sirius shines precisely below fiery Betelgeuse in Orion's shoulder, as captured at right. How accurately can you time this event for your location, perhaps using a plumb bob or the vertical edge of a building? Of the two, Sirius leads early in the evening, and Betelgeuse leads later. Welcome to pre-telescopic astronomy. The Moon is still just a thin waxing crescent, and in any case it sets pretty soon after dark. So: is your sky dark enough for you to see the winter Milky Way? The Milky Way runs up from Canis Major low in the southeast, then between Orion and Gemini, through Auriga and Perseus almost overhead, and down through Cassiopeia, Cepheus, and Cygnus to the northwest horizon. The Milky Way goes right across your zenith around 9 p.m. (depending on your location). Saturday, January 20 Zero-magnitude Capella high overhead, and equally bright Rigel in Sirius Orion's foot, are at almost the same right ascension. This means they cross your skys meridian at almost exactly the same time: around 9 p.m., depending on how far east or west you live in your time zone. (Capella goes exactly through your zenith if you're at latitude 46 north: Sky & Telescope Portland, central France.) Sunday, Oregon; JanuaryMontreal; 21 So whenever Capella passes its very highest, Rigel always marks true

The waxing crescent Moon remains up in the west-southwest after dark now. Right after dusk, look to the south landscape, andatvice versa. Moon'sover left your (by about two fists arm's length) for orange Beta Ceti, 2nd magnitude. That's about as bright as the stars of the Great Square of Pegasus which you'll find balancing on one corner a little farther to the Moon's upper right. Monday, January 22 Orion is now high in the southeast right after dark, and he's highest due south around 10 p.m. Orion is the brightest of the 88 constellations, but his main pattern is surprisingly small compared to some of his dimmer neighbors. The biggest of these is Eridanus the River to his west, enormous but hard to trace.
