Winter walk in the temperature of -5 according to my mercury thermometer.

We took our binoculars with us looked for the patterns in the stars.  The big bear, the little bear, cassiopia, draco the dragon, the pleiades, taurus the bull, orion the hunter (fighting the bull) and the magestic dog star sirius nipping at the hunter’s heals.

Stellarium helps.

Here is Aldebaran in Tauras and then Aldebaran as the Inuit imagined it.
