Dog Star and Dog Stars
We’re talking about Sirius the Dog Star and an upcoming dog show here at the Springs at Borrego. Plan your vacation for sky-watching and a chance to show off your furry friend at our first-ever dog show and competition. Your doggie could be the biggest star of all.
Sirius, the Dog Star in the Night Sky
Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and is easy to see without a telescope. To find the Dog Star in the night sky, look for the three stars in Orion’s belt and follow downwards and to the left. There, not too far above the horizon, Sirius is gleaming brightly.
Astronomers sometimes refer to the Dog Star as ‘Sirius A’ because there is another Sirius you can’t see without a telescope. The Dog Star has a dog of its own, and it’s called ‘Sirius B’ or the Pup Star. See Sirius when you look to the heavens under the only International Dark Sky in California.

Big Fun for Dogs
