Notes to the data
© Copyright by the observers
The constellation of Orion
and the brightest star of the constellation
Sirius (alpha CMa),
dominate the southern direction of northern hemisphere's winter sky.
Fainter and less distinct are the accompanying constellations
(see lines and labels).
Taurus are north
of this group and just partly visible in the above photography.
The southern horizon is smeared due to guiding the earths rotation during the 30 minute
exposure. The sky just above the horizon is lit by artificial light pollution.
