Seeing Stars: Orion's Neighbours

on BBC One London

with Patrick Moore

By using a prominent group of stars as a 'signpost,' you can identify many other constellations and individual stars near it in the night sky, for instance Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, and Epsilon Aurigae, at 2,000 million miles in diameter the largest star we know. But it's so far away that it appears as a tiny dot of light.
