Canis Major in the early November morning

on Thursday, November 17, 2016

Here is an image taken on November 2, 2016 showing the full constellation view of Canis Major as seen from the Northern Hemisphere, it is sitting right at its peak elevation in Pennsylvania. If you are view this on Facebook I have included both the lines and unlined version of the photo. Light clouds seemed to frame the area around the constellation for a short period of time.
