Taurus, Gemini, Orion, Canis Minor, Pleades,

Orion is easy to pick out due to the three bright stars in the belt. The Pleiades is also easy to find. Some call it the little dipper becasue there is a tiny dipper shape inside it. However Pleades is not the little dipper. Can you find Gemini and Taurus? Here is a link to a guide to find all of these constellations just by sighting on Orion. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Orion-guide_dark.svg
