The constellation of Orion the Hunter leaves the Juneau night sky in April. Why are we fascinated by these stars and the legends told about them? To astronomers, the region of Orion is rich with bright stars, clusters of stars, and colorful nebulas. The Orion Nebula is known for stellar nurseries where new stars and planets are born. And what do Orion and 'shooting stars' have to do with Halley's comet?
