Winter Constellations

In my year of astronomy, I've been noting constellations that are visible specifically in the northern hemisphere during specific astronomical seasons.

Northern hemisphere winter constellations include:  Canis Major, Cetus, Eridanus, Gemini, Orion, Perseus, and Taurus.

Orion is mentioned in the Bible, too:

“He made the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades, And the chambers of the south” (Job 9:9).

“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion?” (Job 38:31).

“He made the Pleiades and Orion; He turns the shadow of death into morning And makes the day dark as night; He calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the face of the earth; The LORD is His name” (Amos 5:8).
