An Orion star chart shows magnitudes detailed. The numbers are to one decimel point, with the dot omitted so that it isn't confused with a faint star. For example, a star with 16 next to it has an apparent magnitude of 1.6. Click image to open as a larger Orion tiff file.

Students at Meadow's Edge Elementary School depict Orion in art.
Orion is the featured constellation that students will target in March 2009 during the Globe at Night star count. The star pattern is as much about the lore as it is about the connected dots. In preparation for Let There Be Night, PHM is presenting Audio Visual Imagineering's laser show Legends of the Night Sky...Orion. Thanks go to AVI for sharing their educational yet entertaining laser program with the PHM Planetarium at a reduced cost.
