Here are images of the two famous triangles of the night sky — the Summer Triangle and the Winter Triangle — that I took last October.
These two serve as a stellar calendar, marking the seasons.
The Summer Triangle is the signature star formation of summer. Likewise, the Winter Triangle is a landmark of the winter night sky.
Though December is just around the corner, the Summer Triangle still lights up these autumn evenings. It will continue to shine after dark throughout December and January.
Meanwhile, as the Summer Triangle descends in the west around mid-evening, the Winter Triangle can be seen rising in the east.
Isn’t it amazing that these stars that make up these celestial triangles just happen to be positioned the way they are in the night sky?
Both photos were taken from our suburban place in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
