Looking at GoSkyWatch, Jupiter is far to my west (right) and probably already below the horizon for this shot, at this time of the evening.


So I'm thinking this must be Sirius.

Thank you Keith, yes I was thinking it might be Sirius, I think Jupiter was much higher in the sky at that time.

Beautiful pictures in this series.
Looking at Stelarium, it looks like Jupiter was about 35 degrees above the horizon in the west at that time. Also, Sirius was up about 10 degrees in the south south west.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
