Here are 3 major Winter constellations. I have caught them in the biginning of Spring, when they set just after the Sun. One can see from left to right Canis Major (with its bright star Sirius), Orion and the 3 stars forming its belt and the Taurus (where were Venus and the Moon). Farther on the right, the constellations of Perseus is partially visible.

CLick here to see the original picture.
