Orion's Belt is one of the most recognizable constellations with it's 3-star belt. Run an imaginary line across the middle star in the Belt (from lo-right to upper-left) and find lovely champaigne-colored Betelgeuse. Run the line down thru the mid-star of the Belt to the right and there is Rigel. Below and left (in direct line of the Belt) is brilliant blue Sirius, flickering like a happy firefly; and high above, almost in line with the Belt, is pink Aldebaran, the brightest star in Taurus.

Orion's Belt is the constellation with a belt. Run an imaginary line across the middle star in the belt and find Betelgeuse. Run the line down thru the mid-star of the Belt to the right and there is Rigel.

Orion is my favorite constellation. And that’s not just because he’s the only one I can find.

Its brightest stars are Beta (Rigel -- leg to our right) and Alpha (Betelgeuse -- shoulder to the left), a blue-white and a red supergiant respectively. This image is helpful to see just how reddish Betelgeuse is.
