In our sky, Orion's big dog follows above him, upside down, and to the right of the hunter. Sirius, the night sky's brightest star, is at the bottom of this image. Adhara, Aludra and Wezen mark haunches and a tail on the upper right. Mirzam marks front paws on the lower left. Furud marks back paws in the upper left.
