The Hunt Begins

Throughout the ages, Orion has played a prominent role in astronomy.  The Pyramids are said to be aligned with its belt, though most Astropotamuses don’t believe this.  The Orion Nebula (the middle “star” of his belt”) has been a form of eye test for thousands of years.  And my favorite, it signifies the return of cold, dark, clear winter skies.
