I've been watching for this. Orion is on the rise.
This is a sure sign of approaching winter in the north. Generally, by the time you can see Orion in the evening, it's hunting season. So far I have only seen it in the early morning, when I walk our piddlesome dogs at 4 or 5 am, but bit by bit it will advance, until I see it on the evening constitutional too.
Everywhere I've lived my life, this constellation has been a feature of fall and winter. As a herald of colder, cooler, more comfortable weather, I am always happy to see it.
But I'd better get those tomatoes in.
