(9) Orion near the horizon

The idea of showing Orion's belt as a separate object might also come from the experience of seeing the three stars rising. In northern latitudes, they can be mistaken for a radio tower.
When the three stars are just above the horizon, the bright star Sirius is a hidden image that will appear a certain time later. (In The Beekeepers, Sirius is invisible since it is to the left of the edge of the drawing.)

Whose idea?

Hope this is approved by the blog author.

Still wondering about POSTCARD.

Now I've figured out how to answer comments.
That's my question, whose idea was it to draw the constellation as though it were a stick with three dots?
The postcards are the same images I sometimes send through the mail and sometimes tape together as fanfold books.

There will be more constellation pictures in the next few posts.

The help pages on blogger.com say "word verification" is there to keep people from spamming. I will try disabling it for a while and see what happens.
