Most people see only the belt, which is formed by delta, epsilon and zeta — three second magnitude stars that are spaced equally in a straight line. Beneath the belt is a line of fainter stars, and of these stars theta isn't really a star at all. It's actually the brightest part of Orion nebula. So this great pink star in the sword of Orion turns out to be something... far more complicated and interesting.
