Dog Days

August 2023 Issue

The dog days or dog days of summer were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius, which Hellenistic astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. In this issue, we turn to man's faithful companion to get you through the hot, sultry days of summer. We occasionally crank up the temperature and our dog looks out through its dichromatic vision at our blazing hot vignettes of our shared planet. On Earth, something is always burning these days and we know who the culprits are. It is definitely not the dogs that are mad. These films will make you sweat and for sure send a hot fever upwards to the skies, to Sirius, our beloved star in the Canis major constellation.
