Sirius will be at the bottom of the equilateral Winter Triangle on Sunday, February 25. Monday, February 26, was a great time to spot Sirius B, the famous white dwarf. Tuesday, February 27, was a fine week to look for the zodiacal light. On Wednesday, February 28, five constellations of carnivores rose in a row from the northeast to the south. On Thursday, February 29, big, dim Camelopardalis, the Giraffe, sprawled high in the northern sky. On Friday, March 1, examine the spot 4° south of Sirius to find the open star cluster M41. On Saturday, March 2, the last-quarter Moon rose close to Antares.
