Caption: Starfield. Optical image of a starfield containing the constellations Orion (lower right), Taurus (upper right) and Auriga (upper left) rising over a forest. The Moon is rising behind a tree at lower left. Orion is one of the most prominent constellations, and contains the group known as Orion's belt, three stars of equal brightness equally spaced, seen in a vertical line here. Taurus is a zodiacal constellation centred on the large V-shaped star cluster, the Hyades (top centre). The bright star at the end of the lower arm of the "V" is Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri). The brighter orange star directly below Aldebaran is Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis).
