The Sword Of Orion - The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars. These stars represent Orion’s Sword. Look for the Orion Nebula about midway down in the Sword of Orion, otherwise known as M42, a stellar nursery where new stars are being born. [Space Future: futuristicnews.co...]
Adrift 1,500 light-years away in one of the night sky's most recognizable constellations, the glowing Orion Nebula and the dark Horsehead Nebula are contrasting cosmic vistas. They both appear in this stunning composite color photograph along with other nebulosities as part of the giant Orion Molecular Cloud complex, itself hundreds of light-years across.

Orion the Hunter. Sirius (the brightest star in our sky) - which marks Canis Major, Canis Minor, and Lepus. On February evenings, look south (from northern latitudes) to find Orion. Use the bright stars of his belt to locate Canis Major, Canis Minor, and Lepus. Orion and his companions were so bright last Saturday evening. "Orion is arising, you can see his stars ablazing...." Anyone remember that song?
