Winter Constellations – Orion the Hunter

Look to the South on a clear Winters evening and you will be welcomed by the constellation of Orion. This famous constellation stands out clearly, with the three main stars as the Belt, Orion Nebula as the sword, Betelgeuse the Red Giant on the right shoulder and Rigel the hot blue star as the hunters left foot.

Let’s take a look at the deep sky jewels of Orion!
