The constellation of Orion, the distinctive three stars making up its belt can be clearly seen, rising just above the palm trees and to the right of the oak trees in this early evening image taken at the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area from the Audubon House parking lot.  The Pleiades open star cluster in the constellation of Taurus is visible at the top center of the image as a tight clump of stars.
