Adjacent to the Hyades is an asterism that is easily found; check out the graphic below:

Within that binocular view is the shape of a dog - check out the video below to learn where and how to observe this easy-to-spot grouping of stars, along with Ally's Braids in Taurus the Bull.

Want to know how to find and see these sights and more in the night sky with binoculars or a small telescope? Check out the homepage. For recent videos of other celestial sights to see, click the "Videos" link at the top of this page.

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
