Looking for the Stars (postscript to “3 Stars,” 2 Nov 07)

P.S. To see the constellations as they are in my head, check out H.A. Rey’s book Finding the Constellations . I grew up with this book and when I look for the stars it’s still the pictures in that book that I’m looking for. H. A. Rey also drew Curious George … and he and his wife were Jewish and escaped from France ahead of the Nazis… pretty cool…

If you call up the book on Amazon (that’s the link I gave above), you can search for “Sirius” or “Orion” inside it and find the pages that show the pictures — I tried linking directly to the pages but they won’t give them away like that. Choose page 16 for Sirius and Procyon, page 13 for Orion.

Here’s the original post to which this is a P.S.
