When I bust, I shoot photos. You already know :-) But I don't only shoot Poker players or beaches. This is an October 2018 shot of the Orion constellation that I shot in the garden of the house where I had gotten invited to a home game in Portugal.
Orion is a constellation on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world - also from Colombia in the Southern Hemisphere where I will be next week. The structure is highly recognisable in the night sky and was named after the famous hunter in Greek mythology. Its brightest star is Rigel and the constellation also hosts Betelgeuse, a red giant on 'brink' of destruction. As a matter of fact, astronomers predict that this massive star will 'soon' go supernova but don't get excited. 'SOON', in astronomical terms, could still be in a million years.
Sirius is the star system's and the brightest star inn Earth's night sky. It is almost twice as bright as Canopus, the next brightest. It has the Bayer designation 'Alpha Canis Majoris'. The name 'Sirius' comes from the Greek term 'Seirios' as in 'glowing' .
On top, we see part of the Gemini Constellation with one of its bottom stars, 'Alhema' .
Check out more of my sky shots in the LOOKING UP section of this blog. I'll be adding some more older stuff these coming weeks and months.
