It's in the Stars

Orion is my favorite constellation.  He shows up on time, but he's not part of the zodiac.  He's a big guy, but he sort of does his thing without getting in the way, and nobody really knows what to do with him.  Nobody really messes with him, either.

I saw Orion in the sky this morning for the first time this season.  I'm sure he's been there for at least a few days or weeks, but that's another part of his charm: he's not all that intrusive.  Not like those obnoxious Pleiades.
