    There are seven stars that make up Orion. Betelgeuse makes up the “right shoulder” and is the eighth brightest star in the sky. Rigel serves as the “left foot” of Orion. Unlike the first two stars mentioned, Bellatrix is too small to explode in a supernova and represents the “left shoulder.” Mintaka is the faintest of the three stars that make up Orion’s Belt, and is found on the most western part of it. Alnilam, another star that makes up the Belt, is about four million years old. Alnitak, the easternmost star of Orion’s Belt, is a triple star and is about 800 light years away. Saiph represents the “right foot” of Orion.
