Image Details:

Orion appears as a beautiful giant hunter in the night sky. Orion continues to march westward and in a few months, will disappear from the northern sky, lost in the glare of the Sun. The Winter Triangle consisting of the stars Sirius, Procyon and Betelgeuse were also highly visible, as well as The Pleiades, Aldebaran of constellation Taurus, and Elnath of constellation Auriga. It was a rare beautiful night for stargazing!
