On New Year's Eve, Sirius the brightest star in the night sky is
above the southeastern horizon at 8:00pm (for mid-Northern latitudes)...
...but at local midnight regardless of your location on Earth Sirius is directly on
the Meridian (an imaginary line running North-to-South, through the Zenith overhead).
