Sirius and Rigel

Here are some photos from last night's starry sky. Sirius is brightly shining on the lower left, and Rigel forms the bottom corner of Orion's tunic on the right.

In the second photo, all of Orion can be seen, including the magnificent red supergiant, Betelgeuse, on the left shoulder of Orion.
