Mr. Rankin: Thanks for theMr. Rankin: Thanks for the great post! Orion is so special to me--it was the first constellation that I recognized after agonizing over star charts as a young boy. On the charts I recongnized the three stars of the belt, Mintaka, etc, and went outside and found the belt. From there I learned all the constellations and Orion opened up the universe for me. Orion is like a special friend to me and I look forward to seeing him each fall. I look forward to reading and seeing more of your posts and pics.
