Orion includes the prominent asterism
known as the Belt of Orion: three bright
stars in a row. Surrounding the belt at
roughly similar distances are four bright
stars, which are considered to represent
the outline of the hunter's body. Descen-
ding from the 'belt' is a smaller line of three
stars (the middle of which is in fact not a
star but the Orion Nebula), known as the
hunter's 'sword'.

In artistic renderings, the surrounding con-
stellations are sometimes related to Orion:
he is depicted standing next to the river
Eridanus with his two hunting dogs Canis
and Canis Minor, fighting Taurus
He is sometimes depicted hunting
Lepus the hare. He also sometimes is
depicted to have a lion's hide in his hand.
There are alternative ways to visualise Or-
ion. From the Southern Hemisphere, Orion
is oriented south-upward, and the belt and
sword are sometimes called the sauce-[note 1]

pan in Australia and New Zealand.
Orion's Belt is called Drie Konings (Three
Kings) or the Drie Susters (Three Sisters)
by Afrikaans speakers in South Africa[2]
and are referred to as les Trois Rois (the
Three Kings) in Daudet's Lettres de Mon
Moulin (1866). The appellation Driekon-
ingen (the Three Kings) is also often found
in 17th- and 18th-century Dutch star charts
and seaman's guides. The same three stars
are known in Spain and Latin America as

  • The bulk of the text from this article was taken directly from Wikipedia–even footnote numbers were left in. From "Orion includes" to "hide in his hands", text is taken, almost word for word, from the Wikipedia article on the Orion constellation.[1] From "-pan" (saucepan) to where the page cuts off, text is taken, almost word for word, from the Wikipedia article on the Orionids.[2] Two sentences of social media response to the 2009 Orionids have been cut, and the date of the meteor shower was changed from 2009 to 2010.

  1. The paper says it was released on "Thursday" but the date provided should be a Saturday. Multiple issues of the Herald have this inconsistency.
  2. The article provides a 2010 date for the Hunter Meteor an article from 1983. This is likely a simple production error.
  3. 3.0 3.1 According to this article, the Hunter Meteor Storm was on a Monday. Following the dating of this edition of the Herald, Monday would have been October 18th. But the article also says that the Hunter appeared on October 21st.
