The Orion Constellation as an Installation: An Innovative Three-Dimensional Teaching and Learning Environment
This is the position of the poles for a scale of 1 cm representing 1 light-year. Each pole position is numbered referring to the height of each pole given in column z in Table I . Note the position of the solar system pole marked S with a height of .
The Orion installation viewed from the solar system pole showing the familiar Orion constellation. It was created by secondary school students in the UK. Note the outlines of a giant bird representing a new constellation when viewing the stars of Orion from above.
The right ascension (α) and declination (δ) and distance (r) coordinates toward the main objects in the Orion constellation are listed. Additionally, the Cartesian coordinates (x, y, and z) are included. The Earth is located at (0,0,1) and 1 cm is equivalent to 1 light-year.
