: : : I am also doing a research paper on the O'rion constellation and am wondering if their are any major contreversies about this particular constellation. I would also like to find out more about it's location in the sky, how it was actually found, and anything that's special about it. Thank you!! : It's in the winter sky, you can see it from almost anywhere on Earth, and people didn't find it. They invented it, much the same way as you would invent a picture in the clouds. And I'm not sure how there could be controversy over a constellation.

did you know that O'rion's right hand shoulder is the only red giant that you can see with a naked eye
