If any of you guys have read or know about the stars of Orions belt, their formation ,alignment, and the surveying and setting out of the pyramids at giza this should spark some questions off for you, especially as this was taken from Mars in 2012 and well basically has anyone got and theory's on this awesome photo ?

sort by best latest
Not the answer I was hoping for but defo the best and most plausible, I just can't help being the trusting optimist doh !!!!!
Thanks to all for your answers and great to meet you guys will be checking you out and asking you lots of questions ,Simba
Wow, so far I think your explanation is most likely it does (to me anyway) look like Venus,Deimos and Phobos lining up sort of thing, but very close to orions belt in appearance nonetheless .
Thanks for helping out mate !! :)
Good answer, but would earth be part of the stars formation from Mars on a regular basis? if this happens say every 26,000 years then I'm getting spine chills for sure. I would love to know how often this happens.
Still great answer !!!
Interestingly, the stars in Orion are so far away that the constellation looks pretty much the same from Alpha Centauri as well. The only difference is the addition of Sirius next to Betelgeuse.
Could you see Sirius with the naked eye then?
Yes - it would be a very bright star from Alpha Centauri.
Most other constellations would look the same as they do from here. However, there would also be an extra star in Cassiopeia - our Sun.
