Orion, also known as "The Hunter," is a constellation in the Northern Hemisphere. Connect the dots and see if you can imagine a hunter shooting a bow and arrow. The three stars, Alnitak, Anilam, and Mintaka, form Orion's belt.

The brightest stars in Orion are Rigel, Betelgeuse, and Bellatrix. The Horsehead Nebula and the nebulae M42 and M43 (called the Orion nebula) are also located in this constellation.

Throughout history, people have given names to groups of stars in the sky. A constellation is a group of stars that we see in the sky. These stars are not necessarily located together in space, but they look as though they are a group when seen from Earth. See if you can find these stars in the night sky of the Northern Hemisphere.
