... I have a strange fascination with the constellation Orion.
Me too. And tell me what you think of this:
I think it started when I was a bit younger than you were then, kindergarten or so - 5-ish. Orion always looked like a UFO to me.
rose in the east (I loved the winter months since it meant Orion was coming back and I can sit at my bedroom window facing east and watch it come up
over the horizon).
The stars in Orion's belt, plus giant red Betelgeuse on the left and white Rigel on the right. It was always so perfectly symmetrical and had the
perfect outline of a UFO with three white lights vertically in the middle. I was just so sure that it could not be just a coincidence - that there
was a message in there, that the UFO-aliens PLANNED it that way.
of course, as a child, this was just fantasy thinking. I had no idea yet of the real original constellation of Orion's shape or meaning as "the
Hunter". All I saw was those perfectly shaped five stars in the shape of a UFO rising every night in the east, and then twisting slightly and
turning as it "flew" across the sky through the night. It definitely motivated my thinking to this day, and I still fondly think back to my
childhood every time I see Orion rising in the east -especially if I'm up in the mountains camping or in the desert or something. It STILL has that
captivating, mysterious hold on me...
