Asked in DIY Projects, Sirius
How do you find Sirius A in the sky?
Standing in the northern hemisphere facing south and then looking up, Sirius will appear below and to the left of the constellation Orion. It is easy to spot as it is the brightest star in the night sky. Sirius A and Sirius B are both part of the same system and are much too close to each other for us to see the distance between them without a powerful telescope. The vast majority of the Sirius' light comes from Sirius A.

Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, Sirius
When does the Sirius star come?
In the northern hemisphere, it is normally visible during the winter months. It is the brightest star in the night sky. It is easy to find, if you know where Orion is. The standard method of locating Sirius is to follow the direction that Orion's belt is pointing down to the left. Well below and to the left of Orion you will see Sirius when it has risen above the horizon.
Asked in Betelgeuse, Sirius
How are Sirius and Betelgeuse alike?
Sirius and Betelgeuse are two of the brightest stars in the night sky, with Sirius being the brightest and Betelgeuse being the 9th brightest. Betelgeuse is in the wonderful constellation of Orion. Sirius is in the nearby constellation of Canis Major. They are very easy to spot, with Betelgeuse being at the top left of Orion and Sirius, being below and to the left of Orion, with Orion's Belt acting as a good way of pointing towards it. Comparing the two it is also easy to notice the difference in colour as Betelgeuse is a red supergiant and looks reddish in colour, very different to Sirius.
Asked in Astronomy
What is the closest star to Sirius?
Sirius is a binary star system. The main star is "Sirius A". It's usually just called Sirius. Sirius A has a white dwarf companion called "Sirius B". Sirius B is too faint to be seen without a telescope. So, the closest star to the star we call Sirius, is Sirius B. If you consider that binary system as basically "one star", then the nearest bright star to Sirius is Procyon. There are a few other stars near to Sirius, but they can't be seen with the "naked eye".
