The apex is marked by Meissa (Lambda Orionis), a hot blue giant of spectral type O8 III and apparent magnitude 3.54 which lies some 1100 light years distant. Phi-1 and Phi-2 Orionis make up the base. Also nearby is the very young star FU Orionis.

Famous quotes containing the word head:

    They all see you when you least suspect.
    Out flat in your p.j.’s glowering at T.V.
    or at the oven gassing the cat
    or at the Hotel 69 head to knee.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear,
    Your head like the golden-rod,
    And we will go sailing away from here
    To the beautiful land of Nod.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    My father upon the Abbey stage, before him a raging crowd.
    “This Land of Saints,” and then as the applause died out,
    “Of plaster Saints;” his beautiful mischievous head thrown back.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
