Orion's Milky Way Scavenger Hunt & Give Away: Clue 3

Orion's Milky Way Scavenger Hunt is on! If you'd like to participate in the scavenger hunt for your chance to win a StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono Astrophotography Camera, please make sure you do two things first:

We've decided to begin each week's clue at Messier 39, or M39, in honor of Orion's 39th Anniversary, which we're celebrating this July. See our Week 1 clue for directions to the M39 starting point.

Week 3: Let's Get Started

Orion Scavenger Hunt Target #3:

  • From M39 move almost 23 degrees
  • And cross a bright star named "T"
  • Large, and bright at magnitude 6.3
  • This opening stop is sure to please.
  • Move nine point five degrees more
  • On angle 226, then
  • Try to find an apple core
  • In the Little Fox's den.
  • Our target tonight
  • Is in a constellation that's narrow
  • You'll find it quite near
  • The shaft of an arrow.
  • Though views of this object
  • Were always quite clear
  • Nobody could quite detect
  • Was it young, or advanced in years?
  • In binoculars it will glow
  • At magnitude 8.4
  • But with 7.2 minutes size
  • It really takes a telescope to show.
  • What is this object?

Send in your guess, with a sketch or image of the object, via a Facebook message to Orion Telescopes & Binoculars.
