Layers of clouds at sunrise

I went for a walk to the end of the driveway after dark. Lots of carnivores out and about tonight; the big bear and the little bear (Ursa Major and Ursa Minor) in the north, Orion's two hunting dogs (Canis Major and Canis Minor) to the west, a lion (Leo) in the east, and a sea serpent (Hydra) in the south.  No reason to be concerned.  I may not be able to see her in the dark but I can hear the slight ting made by the tags on Indy's collar.  She'll let me know if there is anything around that I should know about.

We had clear skies last Saturday so I was outside with my starmap trying to identify. I found hydra, sirius, and the little dipper. I pointed out Regulas to Steve. It's not too far from Sirius. I think that is where J.K. Rowling got the names for Black brothers in Harry Potter.
