What will be the constellation of Orion in 450 thousand years

The European Space Agency, on the basis of data obtained from the satellites Gaia and Hipparcos, has determined how the Orion constellation will look in the future.

The stars constituting the usual outlines of the constellations are in constant motion, but too slowly to be seen during the lifetime of one person, and the data from the satellites allow us to notice small changes in the position of the stars and to calculate where they will move through hundreds of thousands of years.

Some of the stars that are now visible in the constellation of Orion will be beyond, and Betelgeuse will explode, forming a supernova, Aldebaran now entering the constellation of Taurus, will be in the constellation of Orion.
