What really amazes me is that Alnilam kicks out more than , times as much light than our sun does.

If it were 19 light-years away instead of 1, light years, it would easily be the brightest star in our sky. This giant nuclear-fusion-powered gas ball is over 21 million miles in girth.
Jersey Skies: Saying farewell to Orion - Jersey's Best
Traveling to Alnitak would require a journey of a little over light-years. Alnitak has two smaller companion stars — which cannot be seen with the naked eye — and all three stars orbit each other.
A lot of stars that appear as a single star may actually be part of a multi-star family, with all of the stars orbiting each other. If you were on a planet around one of these stars you would have multiple suns in your sky!
Mintaka, on the upper right-hand side of the belt, is about the same size as Alnitak. It has a surface temperature of over 50, degrees F. Just like Alnitak, Mintaka is another multiple star system made up of at least two stars orbiting and eclipsing each other. As the two stars pass in front of each other, their combined brightness varies slightly over time. All three of these stars are different in size, power output, temperature, and more; yet all three stars line up neatly in our sky with nearly identical brightness. On Sunday and Monday night the new crescent moon will pass by the planet Mars in the western evening sky.

A Tale of Two Stars: The Inside Story of Orion's Belt
More in Things to Do. Three times a week, a group of joggers gather for their morning run. Jennifer Lopez is about to turn 50 and rather than hide it, she's spending the summer celebrating it on a tour dubbed It's My Party. Paul's Xcel Energy Center on Friday night. The rules are simple. You got to The Guthrie Theater's summer production of "Guys and Dolls" is like a doughnut you get at one of those trendy, high-end bakeries: All around the circle is imaginative creation -- sprinkles and colors and familiar flavors given a surprising twist.
In the center, though, there's mostly just an empty hole. In this, in Chile, I wouldn't have wanted to be. I hope to do so one day.
Meanwhile, with the shadow technique I created this effect I painted the two buildings, one warped. I cropped it like an old book on constellations that I have in my library and I added, cropping a photo, the mountain. The Lake is not seen, though I imagined I replicated the picture, cropped, decomposed and rotated A factory?
I decided on a ship I cropped, broken, rebuilt, side by side.
