The constellation Orion, as we know it, is only visible from earth. Its stars are located on various distances from us (ranging from 243 to 1342 light years) which means that the structure looks completely different from another position in outer space.

Astrohedron (Orion) is a microscale visualization of the actual positions of Orion’s main stars.
