cadentibus Haedis, ‘when the Kids are setting,’ (at sunrise) in the middle of December. These two stars, with the she-goat Capella, form part of the constellation Auriga, whose rising is also mentioned as accompanied by storms. Cf. Fast.V. 113, G. I. 205. In England they are circumpolar stars and do not set.
