what i was doing on new year's eve

That's right, I was out starwatching.

Orion and the star Sirius (bottom left). Sirius is the brightest star in the night-time sky. Only our sun appears brighter. To the top-right you can see the horns of Taurus, the bull.

Taurus and the Open Cluster M45, the Pleiades. To the right is Perseus, the Greek hero who slew Medusa.

If you click on the images, you will be lead a Flickr page that has the constellations, stars and such are labeled.
