About the fanlisting

A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not the only) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting fans across the globe.

This site is a fanlisting, which lists only the fans of the constellation Orion and it was adopted from Jordan, in July 2008.

About the constellation

Orion is a brilliant winter constellation in the high eastern sky. Seven giant stars mark its primary shape, but several more are official parts of the constellation also. Two nebulae, the Horsehead nebula and the Orion nebula (known as the middle “star” in his sword), are within its bounds and the beautiful Orion Nebula is visible with a cheap telescope or very good binoculars. In very clear skies you may see his arms, the left (his right) extended upward and the right arm (his left) extended outward.

The stars Betelgeuse, Bellatrix, Rigel and Saiph mark the shoulders and knees. Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka mark his belt. The brilliant and piercing blue star Sirius is directly below Orion and is officially a part of the constellation Canis Major. Canis Major, and Canis Minor too, is seen as Orion’s hunting dog.
