This photo was taken in Ocean City, NJ next to the old 59th Street fishing pier. Often called the Dog Star, Sirius is part of the constellation Canis Major and is also the brightest star in the night sky. A tripod, flashlight, remote shutter, and a 10 second timer were used to make this self portrait possible.
