Anyway, a couple weeks ago, Mom and Dad took us all outside to go potty on a VERY starry night! It was a gorgeous night - crisp and cool and oh, what a star-filled sky! Dad was admiring this one star that looked kind of greenish. Since I am the chief meteorologist around here and also like to keep everyone filled in on all things astronomy-related, I decided I should do some research when we got inside and figure out exactly what star it was.
I borrowed Mom's iPad and checked the GoSkyWatch app. It was just as I thought! It was Sirius - the Dog Star! Check it out!
It was very beautiful!
The next time Zim and I went outside, I pointed the star out and told him that it was the Dog Star! He asked if I was sure and I said, "Yes!" He looked up and said, "Hey! Are you Sirius?!!?" And I said, "Why, yes, Zimmie. Yes, I am serious." Hee hee hee!
Here's a totally un-related picture of me, studying the sky out on a walk:
...and here's a picture of Zimmie after I've told him one of my really funny jokes:
|Zimmie. Trying really hard not to laugh at my jokes.|
Even though I'm sure he really likes them.
Next time you're out on a starry night, look for the Dog Star! It's Siriusly beautiful! Hee hee hee!
