I am Orion

The Mighty Hunter

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Oscar Wilde

Greetings, People of Earth! Welcome to the blogsite of Orion the Mighty Hunter.

Orion. You know me as a magnificent constellation of stars in the winter skies: a giant hunter etched in the cosmos. I am instantly spotted by the geometric perfection of the three stars on my Belt.

So during the stargazing season of 2021, I invited Astronomers and Astrophotographers to showcase their beautiful photographs of my stars in a special Constellation Collection.

This was such a success that I have compiled and published a beautifully illustrated book featuring photographs and stories by 45 astronomers of my Constellation:

Stars of Orion: An Astronomy Special

The ebook became available on Amazon in November 2021 – as I returned for my Winter Season in the night sky!

The Paperback edition is available from the Book Depository

and on order from your local bookshop

on Amazon as an ebook

The Paperback is available from Amazon

Along with stunning photos of my beautiful stars and nebulae, Stars of Orion features personal stories and Guest Essays from amateur & professional astronomers.

There’s a host of fun facts for super soaraway stargazers of all ages – how, where and why they take wonderful pictures of me – and technical details on how to best view me in the skies.

I have captivated stargazers and astronomers through the generations since the time I lived, loved, and hunted in Ancient Greece. The greatest hunter of my time. Made immortal in the heavens. I fell in love with many women. There are many versions of my tumultuous life and untimely demise. The Schrödinger’s Cat of Greek mythology: dead on Earth, alive in the sky. Multiple states, multiple stories. Compared to my eternal glorious luminescence, my terrestrial life is of a rampant, raunchy hunter. Or of a hero; a gentle lovelorn giant, whose heart was broken many times.

So my memoir is being rewritten as a rip-roaring science-fiction thriller:

Orion: The Hunter’s Story

Coming soon on Amazon late in 2022!
