Orion below the horizon? Where am I going wrong please?


Recommended Posts

Happy New Year to all. It's December in London and Orion would look lovely if I had a clear sky once in a while.

Why though on a printed sky balloon that I have, is Orion below the Horizon and not above?

I know I'm missing something, please help.

My memory of London this time of year (when visiting in the eighties) was that it did not offer optimal viewing conditions.  

Orion is prominent in the winter sky, arcing across the southern sky in the evening.  

I don't know which direction from London would get you away from light pollution the quickest.

Hoping for clear skies in London ?
Unless you mean London, Ontario ( in Canada ), I'm afraid you're gonna have to move.
