How do you find Orion’s belt from the Big Dipper?

Asked by Reign Frye

To find Orion’s belt, you need only locate the constellation, as detailed later, and look for the neat line of three similar-looking stars spaced about equally apart. In order from left to right (i.e., from your left to right as you view Orion from the ground), these stars are Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka.
