Sirius, the Dog Star, Equal to Five Stars of the First Mag nitude. Colstellation of Taurus, Important to the Anclen t-Inequality--Tie Distrl butlon of Bright Stars. lWritten for THE HELENA INDEPENDENT ] RION STILL MAINTAINS HIS splendid leadership among the winter constellations, although by nine p. m. he is now well over toward the west. Every one is familiar with the appearance of this striking groun of sears, which hangs in the heavens likes a gigantic letter X. .Most an cient of the constellations, perhaps-cer tainly the most imposing-Orion is sur rounded by historic associations and is en veloped in a halo of poetry and mythology, which, doubtless, have quite as much to do with its fascination for modern star-pazers as the singular majesty of the constellation itself. It is still, as of old, the "mighty Orion," although its potency is now not over the weather, but over the imagination. This constellation is said to contain sev enty-eight stars visible to the naked eye, of which two are the first and four of the second magnitude. Betelgeuse, at the up per left-hand corner (in the right shounler, as the figure of the constellation is usually drawn), and Rigel,,at the lower right-hand corner (the left foot) are both of tl}e first magnitude. Bellatrix, in the left shoulder, is of the second magnitude, and Saiph, in the right knee, is of the third. The three stars at the center, which form the belt, all of the second magnitude, are scmetimnes re garded as forming a constellation in them selves, They are the "Three Kings," or they are "Jacob's Rod;" in connection with a fourth star, in the sword, they are more popularly now known as the "Yard L." The very bright star to the left of Orion, nearly In a line with the Three Kings, is Sirius, popularly known as the dog star. This is by far the brightest star in the heavens, its light being esatmates to equal that of five ordinary stars of the first mag nitude. Under the name Sothis this star was an object of especial interest and ven, oration to the ancient Egyptians. It was btlieved to be the residence of the goddess IHes. Its helisaal rising, or first appearance above the horizon at daybreak, which oo curred in July, marked the beginning of the Egyptian year. Upon the rising-of this star the overflow of the Nile began. 1t thus gave the Egyntian husbandmen so- ( tics of the approach of an occurrence in 1 which they had great interests at stake; hence It was called the "watcher," the "dog." This is at least the most probable explanAtion of its popular name, "Dog star," which certainly cannot have been I suggested by any peculiar configuration of the stars surrounding it: To the right or west of Orion is the old I constellation Tanrub, the Bull, the prinol- I pal star of which, Aldebaran-a star of the i first magnitade-l. nearly on a line drawn t from tlirus through the Three Kings and at f about the same distance from them as Sirius. Taurus was a very important con- I stellation for the anieonts, and is continu- I ally referred to in works on husbandry, such as Virgil's "Geories" %and l s "Works and Days." He was said to "penl I the year with his golden hornse," sinae upon c his rising, ia April, the spring's work be gan. This constellation contains two very pretty star clusters-the well known Pleiades, now just above the western hori zon. and the more diffuse and less striking Hyades, which form a V-shaped oluster olose beside Aldebaran. Both clusters are very fine objects for an opera glass. The bright star to be seen above and a little to the left of Sirius is Procyon, the Smaller Dog (Canis Minor). This is a first magnitude star. It can easily by identified from its position at about equal distances from Sirius and Betelgeuse, with which it forms a large equal-sided triangle.

These are the twins (Gemini), the more northerly of which is Castor, the other, Pollur. Facing the southeast we may see, at rather more than half the distance from the horizon to the zenith, the constellation Leo (the lion), the principal star in which Regulus was formerly classed as of the first magnitude but is now degraded to the second rank. Leo contains a sub-constella tion, the Sickle, which is familiar to many who are unacquainted with the lion itself. The Sickle is a well-marked group of stats, the star Regulus forming the handle, and the blade being formed by a curved line of five or six stars above it. To the east of Leo is the constellation Virgo, which contains a star of the first magnitude, Spioa. Wheat-Ear, now only just risen; and a little to the north of east at about the same altitude as Spica, is Arc tarus, usually regarded as the brightest star in the northern heavens. One other star of the first masnitude is now visible-Capella, the Kid, the princi pal star in the constellation Auiitn, the Charioteer, midway between the zenith and the horizon in the northwest, The inequality In the distribution of the bright stars over the celestial sphere is 1I lustrated by the fact that eight of the twelve first magnitude stars that are ever visible in the United States are now above the horizon, and that six of these are grouped in and around Orlon, About the close of the month Mercury may be been in the west an hour or so after unset, its greatest eastern "elongation" oeeurring on the 80th of the month. Venus is an evening star and Is rapidly Increasing in brilliancy as its course in its orbit brings it nearer to the earth. Mbars is a morning star now rising in the southeast between two and three o'clock. He is still too far away from us to be an object of much interest. Jupiter is now in so close proximity to the sun as to be invisible. Saturn will be in "opposition" to the snn, and consequently at his shortest dis tance from the earth, on the 16th of the month. The position of this planet is therefore especially favorable for obsprve tion. For the possessor of a good tele scope Saturn is this year an unusually interesting object, from the fact that the rings are now set edgewise toward us and appear as little more than a slender thread of light, even when viewed through a large telescope. Astronomers aro improving an opportunity which recurs only at intervals of fifteen years, to make a special study of this peculiar feature of the Baturnian world. Uranus is in the eastern part of the con stellation Virgo; Neptune is in Tadrus, a short distance north of the star Aldebaran. Both planets are above the horizon at nine p. m., but neither is visible to the naked eye. GxoIoIE S. JoNeS. Copyright. Now Try This.
