Constellations - Orion

We learned before about the constellation the Big Dipper.

Let's learn about some more constellations!

The constellation of Orion looks like a person, and if you connect the dots
and use your imagination you might be able to see someone who is hunting with a bow and arrow.

In old Greek stories (called mythology) Orion was a great hunter.
(from: wikipedia - orion constellation)

The best way to find Orion in the sky is to look for three stars together, these are part of Orion's belt.
