1.The easiest way to find Orion is to go outside in the evening and look in the southwest sky if you are in the northern hemisphere or the northwestern sky if you are in the southern hemisphere. If you live on or near the equator, he will be visible in the western sky. You are looking for three bright stars close together in an almost-straight line. These three stars represent Orions belt. The two bright stars to the north are his shoulders and the two to the south are his feet.
2. Orion is located at a distance of 1,340 light years from Earth.
3. Mars appears low in the western sky shortly after sunset. Look west in the sky after sunset. The planet will be roughly 30 degrees above the horizon.
