Fact Friday!

The summer is heating up!

Many would say we are in the "Dog Days Of Summer", but do you actually know the meaning of that saying?

The "dog days of summer" is actually the dates from July 3-August 11 in which the "dog star" Sirius, in the constellation Canis Major, rises with the sun and is the brightest star in the sky.

Some feel that the combination of the brightest luminary in the day (the sun), and the brightest star in the night (Sirius) is responsible for the extreme heat that we feel during the height of the summer.

AWESOME!
