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.
"If we are to have peace on earth ... our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective. No individual can live alone, no nation can live alone, and as long as we try, the more we are going to have war in this world. We must either learn to live together as brothers or we are all going to perish together as fools."
Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967
