Daily cosmobite: stars in the north

Tonight let us look at the northern sky in the early evening. Starting from the left (west) we find the reddish star Aldebaran and then the bright stars of Orion including Rigel and Betelgeuse. Sirius is high up and due north while low down and a little to the right or east we reach Pollux and its twin, Castor.
