For the Greeks and Romans, the “Dog Days” occurred around the time Sirius rose alongside the Sun in late July in the northern hemisphere. They believed that the combined heat of the two stars made these days the hottest of the year, a time that could bring fever or even catastrophe.
When Sirius appeared in the sky just ahead of the Sun towards the end of July, it marked the beginning of the hottest days of the year. The Romans referred to this time as “the caniculares” or “Days of the Dog Star”, which eventually translated simply as “Dog Days”.
