Bright, twinkling stars

This is probably the most basic of questions, however I need to ask. While staying at a hunting camp in Central Ontario on the weekend of February 10-12, I was outside at around midnight when I noticed two stars that were unusually bright, and twinkling. Almost directly south (and slightly west), fairly low in the horizon was a bright star that changed colour, I believe mostly blue, red and yellow. I've noticed this star before when at this camp, but have never been able to determine what it is. Any ideas?<br />Also, more to the west and higher in the horizon was another star blinking in the same way, however not as distinctive in colours. <br />If you can give me some hints, and some places to research, I'd be most appreciative.<br /><br />Dave Woodside<br />Havelock, ON

I believe that would be Sirius. It's the brightest star in the sky especially where you describe it to be.<br /><br />Cheers
