End Of The Dogs


Today is August the 12th, and officially marks the end of the ‘Dog days of Summer’, which run from July 3rd to August 11th of each year. The phrase itself is a reference to Sirius, the Dog Star. Sirius is the brightest star visible from any part of Earth and a part of the constellation Canis Major.

July 23rd, Sirius rises and sets with the Sun. In Ancient Greece and Rome, they believed Sirius actually gave off heat and added to our Sun’s warmth, accounting for the long stretch of sultry weather. This stretch of time was referred to as diēs caniculārēs, or “dog days.” Thus, the term Dog Days of Summer came to mean the 20 days before and 20 days after this alignment of Sirius with the Sun—July 3 to August 11 each year.
