History of Orion

Orion was the son of Poseidon & Euryale, one of the Gorgons. A giant hunter who boasted that he could kill any creature on Earth, Orion challenged the goddess Artemis, daughter of Zeus, to hunt. Indignant at his presumption, Artemis threw the Scorpion against him & the terrible battle that followed led the gods to separate them. They were placed in two opposite places in the sky & are never at the same time above the horizon.
