Watching the dog follow the hunter across the sky from east to west.


Today, the student became the teacher, as she showed me the various constellations.. and we suddenly realised that ancient europeans faced North-South and not East-West like us.

So as we faced canopus (Agastya) in the south with the back of our heads facing Polaris, we saw what ancient europeans saw,  Canis Major following Orion from east to west.

We also saw Taurus as the Europeans saw it. Very enjoyable!!

Thanks to Siva for a clear Mahashivaratri sky!!
