Orion constellation is a very famous constellation. It can be seen throughout the earth. Orion looks like a warrior with a weapon and skirt. I see this constellation daily and wonder, if there is a planet there.


Yes, there are exo-planets discovered in the Orion constellation, for instance, the stars HD 37605 and HD 38529 both have two known planets.

HD 38858 is also interesting, as it has a known planet, and also a disk of comets.

HD 38858

  • $\begingroup$ Well, HD 38858b is within the habitable zone, but it is 32 Earth masses. Small planets like Earth are incredibly difficult to detect. $\endgroup$ – SE - stop firing the good guys Feb 5 '16 at 7:31
  • $\begingroup$ @Rishabh Sharma- What made you wonder about if Orion contained a planet similar to Earth and contained life like Earth as well? $\endgroup$ – user5434678 Feb 5 '16 at 23:56
