Orion looks very much like a person. First, you should spot Orion’s Belt, which is made of three bright stars in a straight line. One of Orion’s legs is represented by the bright star Rigel, one of the brightest stars in the night sky. His two shoulders are made of the stars Bellatrix and Betelgeuse. You can see Betelgeuse’s reddish color without a telescope.
SciStarter and Arizona State University created a customizable citizen science kit with everything needed for patrons to engage in Globe at Night. Access all the materials and details at SciStarter.org/Library-Resources
