the real stars of new years eve

if youre running around outside tonight at your local midnight, making noise and welcoming the new year... look up! find the orion constellation, focus on the bright orange mars, and reflect on the earth's recent trip around the sun.

the three stars of orions belt point down toward the bright star sirius.

the the left of the star betelgeuse, in orion, is the bright planet, mars.

enjoy! i hope the new year brings happiness for you all!

Don't forget Canopus, halfway between Sirius and the celestial South Pole!
