ORION CONSTELLATION and NEBULA
When you move your mouse and aim at an object explanatory text will pop up for a while (for brighter objects only).
The hand cursor is to ensure compatibility with Netscape, but a click gets you nowhere, unless you click on the Orion Nebula itself. Betelgeuse - alpha Orionis
