Orion's an hour or two above the western horizon, clear sky. If you're outside before dawn you ought to be able to get a good look at him.
That bright, middle star of his belt isn't a star. It's a globular cluster. A whole snowstorm of stars, all bunched up so's they look like one. Fairly impressive through a telescope. Although maybe my memory's serving me wrong. Maybe that one's a nebula. It's been 25 years since I looked at it through a telescope.
In the early times of telescopism the instruments weren't clear enough to distinguish between a globular cluster and a nebula unless the nebula was a particularly good one, such as the Horseshoe or the Crab. A guy named Messiere, or something similar located as many as he could find and catalogued them. Now all are M 294 or whatever, numbered by his initial.
Anyway, if you're outdoors you might amuse yourself by taking a look.
