Tonight's Sky for December 31: Get Sirius for the New Year

Ring in the New Year with Sirius, alpha (brightest) star of Canis Major, the big dog, and brightest star in the entire sky. Why the New Year connection? Sirius is very near to due South on New Year's Eve. To see it, go out at midnight and look South to find an extremely bright blue star, Sirius.
