Sorry for your loss.

I’ve used SkyView Lite to help identify stars in my area. If you can still see those same stars you can point the app at them and it’ll give the name of the star. If you tap on the star then click on the “i” in the lower right corner (on android) It’ll give you more info on the star including the constellation it’s in. It’s available for free on both iOS and Android. I don’t work for them. I just think it’s a cool app.


I’m sorry for your loss. It looks like they were Procyon, Sirius and Betelguese


Thank you
