Orion constellation is easy to recognize in the night sky, thanks to its belt at its center, composed of Alnitak, Alnilam, Mintaka, and bright stars Rigel and Betelgeuse at their extreme points. The famous Orion´s Nebula is the brightest nebula in the sky. The Flame and Horsehead nebula, near Alnitak is the other wonder found in Orion Constellation. Betelgeuse is a red supergiant approaching its end of life. Poster and fine art prints available in the shop.
