Vasu Agarwal constructed this composite image using three different photos of the sky’s brightest star, Sirius, and constellation Orion. The photos were taken 20 to 30 minutes apart on April 6, 2013. Vasu had this interpretation of the scene:
In this shot, taken at around 10:30 p.m., it looks like Sirius is chasing the Hunter, Orion, and Orion is running to hide behind the hill.
Thank you, Vasu!
