The Star in the East and Three Kings | Wise Men | Magi

The Three Stars in Orion's belt point towards Sirius, who was thought by the Ancients to bring the scorching heat of summer (Canicula), which is why her constellation was called 'Canis' in latin

The constellation of Orion is rich with impressive nebulas. Of the many interesting details that particularly draws the eye is Barnard's Loop, the bright red circular filament arcing down from the middle. The bright orange star on the upper left is Betelgeuse, while the bright blue star on the lower right is Rigel. Other famous nebulas visible include the Witch Head Nebula, the Flame Nebula, and the comparatively small Horsehead Nebula. NASA-APOD, Stanislav Volskiy.

My favorite thing to do is walk to the beach at night, lay back on the rocks and watch the stars. Sometimes shooting. Sometimes just still. There is nothing more awe inspiring. Nothing else brings me the pleasure of pure calm and delight.

15 Constellations Every Man Should Know (And How to Find Them)

There are few things more stunning than the collection of stars forming Constellations. In this post, we explore the 7 Most Beautiful Constellations.

The famous Horsehead Nebula is about 1,500 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Orion. The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.  Nothing like space to bring you down to dude.

The  Orion Nebula in the 'Sword' of the constellation of Orion. This is one of my most favourite Nebulas and my Luv found this great photo of it for me.  Orion is probably the most interesting constellation

Got a stretched canvas print for our living room to go next to the butterfly nebula the Orion Nebula (Top) and NGC 1977 a Reflection Nebula (Bottom)

Hacia el norte transitarán la constelación de Orión con sus fácilmente distinguibles estrellas brillantes Betelgeuse, Rigel, Alnitak, Alnilam y Mintaka, la constelación del can mayor, con la brillante Sirio, y el toro con la brillante Aldebarán; hacia el sur dominan Carina y la brillante estrella canopus, el centauro y la cruz del sur. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Observatorio-Astron%C3%B3mico-de-C%C3%B3rdoba-OAC/108460115866648?fref=nf

The nebula Messier 78 (also known as M 78 or NGC 2068) is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780 and included by Charles Messier in his catalog of comet-like objects that same year.

The Horsehead and the Flame Nebulas in the constellation Orion

The Horsehead and the Flame Nebulas in the constellation Orion, I really wish I had an awesome and powerful telescope

This image from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope shows a stellar nursery containing thousands of young stars and developing protostars near the sword of the constellation Orion. Massive stars light up the Orion nebula, the bright region near the centre of the image. To the north of the nebula is a dark filamentary cloud of cold dust and gas over five light years long, containing ruby red protostars that jewel the hilt of Orion's sword

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.
