1. The ancient Romans noticed that the hottest days of the year, that is, in late July and August, coincided with the appearance of Sirius – the Dog Star, in the same part of the sky as the Sun. Sirius is the largest and brightest star in the Canis Major constellation, in fact it is the brightest star in the sky. Roman astrology connected the celestial event with increased heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever mad dogs and bad luck.
