A Winter Night of Alps

By: Tamas Ladanyi


Region: Europe

Site: Styria - Austria

Date: January 2011

Constellation Orion, the Hunter, and Sirius, the brightest star of the night sky, shine over Fischbacher Alpen, near Alpine village of Krieglach in Austria. The three brightest stars in this view (Sirius, Rigel at Orion's foot, and Betelgeuse at Orion's shoulder) form a large prominent asterism known as the Winter Triangle. Tamas Ladanyi/
