Where were you last night?

Day 26:  Night

This is a picture of Orion, my favorite constellation.  I didn't take this picture.  It was too cloudy at night, and I'm not sure I could've found Orion anyhow. 

My literary reference is that John Dos Passos, in his memoir The Best Times, called Orion "the patron saint of nocturnal adventure", a phrase that has stayed with me since I first read it 30 years ago.

Also, in the lower left section, that really bright star is the Dog Star.  And you're supposed to say, "Are you Sirius?"
