The constellation Sirius is called “the dog star.”  It was the brightest star in the sky and the most important star for the ancient Egyptians.
Sirius has two companion stars Sirius B and Sirius C. Both of these stars are invisible to the naked eye and were only discovered through the use of telescopes.
There is a tribe in Mali, West Africa called the Dogon who have worshiped these stars for centuries.

The Dogon know about the four moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn which were also discovered using telescopes.
The Sirius mystery is simply: ” How did the Dogons acquire their knowledge of Sirius B and Sirius C.?
Those who believe in the Ancient Aliens assert that there was contact between extraterrestrials and the Dogon tribe in the ancient past.

This theory has been disputed by mainstream archaeologists and anthropologists.
The mainstream archaeologists and anthropologists assert that the tribe gained this knowledge from the researchers who were studying them.
Ancient alien theorists still maintain that there was extraterrestrial contact between the Dogons and ancient aliens.
It should be mentioned here that although the ancient alien question is intriguing; it is not accepted by the academic community.
