A quick capture of Sirius (in the constellation Canis Major) and the open cluster Messier 41 (that grouping of stars right below Sirius), a light wispy cloud cover adds to the view. The image was taken at 10:00 PM local time when Sirius was at it's highest point in the sky, look for it by looking south in the evening, it will be the brightest star visible.
