Dear ATSers,

Recently I used google earth to take a look at google sky and I found this strange triangular shape near the Orion region. That might be nothing, but it could be something, it is all up to you.



Here is the first picture with red pointers showing the region without any bordering





Here is the second picture without pointers, but with a rough draft of what the region borders as a triangle might look like.

Here are the coordinates if you wish to take a look for yourself using google earth:
RA 5h25m17.87s Dec 6º28'33.56" 48º24'35.08" arcdegrees

While I see what you're trying to point out, you can make triangles for millions of years with all the stars there are in the sky.

Well theres your first mistake.
Google sky is a horrible patchwork mosaic of crappy images sourced from all over the place.
No thread worthy of the name would be based on images presented from google sky.

Now on the other hand, if you had a REAL image of that region taken as a single shot from a real telescope, then go for it.

Yup. And the dimmer you're willing to go, the more you will find.

The southern one is more "unnatural". Meaning more equilateral.

Pop quiz: How many shapes can you make with three points?

What you pointed out in this picture is near NGC 925 an the image I put in the thread is near NGC 2022, which is a long way from the first constellation.

Well as for the crappy part of google earth, I can not prove it for sure, but you did not in any way either so ... I could admit such thing, but I do not see any proof of it within this post of yours.

I see what the OP is talking about.
It is a stitching artifact. An intersection of two (at least) photographic plates.

A straight line or a triangle?

Is not the Triangulum Australe in the constellation of Hercules, instead of the constellation of Orion, as it was stated in the thread at the beginning?

Yes I know. I was commenting on how three stars will form a triangle.

Your artifact does on appear on WWT. It is not real. It is a stitching artifact, courtesy of Google Earth.

First, I am compelled to thank you Phage for this software which seems to be interesting. Second, I will take a look after downloading it to see in the same region I linked in the OP using Google Earth.

You are welcome.
But before you get too excited about it, understand:
1) Like Google Sky, it is not realtime.
2) Like Google Sky, it has it's own set of artifacts.

Alright, I will take this in consideration. I understood the triangle I mentioned was composed of HR1763 at the top, Omega Orionis bottom left, Rho Orionis bottom right and Bellatrix or Omega Orionis at it's center. While looking at this triangular shape, I noticed the gas clouds around top left seemed to follow a straight line, and the whole shape seemed to sum up like a triangle.



Here is the first picture outlining where I found a triangular shape.





Finally, this one is showing the corrected shape of the triangle according to the software microsoft worldwide telescope.



I must thanks again Phage for letting me know in the thread concerning this free software which allowed me to dig deeper on the topic.

Not to be a noodge here, but three points (minimum) also define a plane....

First time that my being a mechanical inspector has ever had value in conversation...
