The Winter Hexagon graphic from Stellarium

Step outside after dinner and stand in wonder of the winter sky. 

You’ll be treated to magnificent display of very bright stars (1st magnitude or brighter) --- more than during any other season. Most are in the winter hexagon visible in the SE after dark.
