The Sumerians called Orion URU AN-NA, meaning “the light of heaven.”
It is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world.
It is one of the most recognisable constellations. It is named after Orion, a hunter in Greek mythology.
Orion was the son of Poseidon, and he empowered Orion to be a mighty and fearless hunter.
In ancient Egypt, it was believed that Orion’s Belt was the constellation symbol of Osiris
and that they were reflected by the three great pyramids meant to symbolise
and be used as a gateway for the Egyptian Pharaohs to cross from mortal life into the afterlife.
