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...


The way I see it in the 4th picture with the red triangle would be a triangular pyramid with the brightest star on the center being the top of it.

Concerning your post, could you please bring in more information about the relationship between 3 points and a plane ?

Sky-Map.com is a much better way to look at space than Google Sky. You can also try H-alpha and infrared overlays there, to see how gas and dust clouds are arranged in space.

In the location pointed out by the OP, I can see how gas clouds can be seen to (very vaguely) form a triangle, but there's no real triangle there. It's just a meeting of two different gas formations.

Thanks.
I had lost my link to skymap and couldn't remember what it was called.

Here's a full-length image of Orion:


Other sizes, including the original 2600 x 4008 image can be found here.

Enjoy!

Another interesting tool I can use to map the sky and the constellation. Thank you for your contribution to the thread. I must note though that the constellation icon I am suppose to simply click to toggle it between on/off does not seem to work, can anybody confirm/infirm this?

That button only works with the "SKY-MAP.ORG" overlay, the one below "Astro Photo Survey".

Ok thanks, I noticed after a bit of research but thanks anyway for the quick reply.
