This has always been the star system that i've easilly recognised in the night sky. I didn't realise until reading this course that the angle of the belt changes over the course of a year, is visible in northern and southern hemispheres and the system contains a fuzzy nebula of stars.
Regretably where we live in a large city, both weather and light pollution prevents seeing Orion, let alone take photos. About a few times a year, I can see a few stars in the dipper (Ursa Major). I trust this will not prevent completion of the course !
