Oops i mean Sun rising with Sirius...mistake!

I have to give two pictures both at the same time to show the Sun rising while Sirius is culminating, in astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere, to show what star is in the middle of the sky, it needs a straight line upwards from South ( In the Southern Hemisphere this changes to straight up from North, however we are dealing with Rome that is in the Northern Hemisphere.

It was Pope Sixtus that moved the obelisk that was completed on 28th September 1586, just after calendar reform.

Vatican Obelisk

I will show download pictures of astronomy on next thread section.
