Why the “Dog Days” of Summer?

21 Aug

The dog days of summer are the hottest days of the season.

They are named after Sirius, the Dog Star, one of the stars in the constellation Canis Major.

During this time of year, the Dog Star gets very close to the sun. Long ago, people thought that was the reason it got so hot.
