  Meissa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
At faint third magnitude, Meissa is not important in star-lore for its brightness, but for its position, as (with a pair of other stars) it marks the head of the ancient Hunter.
Meissa is a double that consists of a hot (35,000 Kelvin!) fourth magnitude class O star four seconds of arc away from a still-pretty-warm sixth magnitude B star ("only" 27,000 Kelvin).
Meissa is also the luminary of a small cluster.

 Meissa (Lambda Orionis)
Meissa (also known as Hatya) is best-known for a huge surrounding ring of gas, called Sh2-264 or the Meissa Ring, an astonishing 150 light-years across that is ionized by the star.
These structures may be composed of material left over from the formation of Meissa that has been compressed by the action of the O star.
Alternatively, it's possible they were created from the blast of another star that exploded in the neighborhood of Meissa a few million years ago.

On this expedition, Wilson not only located the terrestrial counterpart to Orion's head (Meissa), but also pinpointed the terrestrial location for the star Leporis; not-so-coincidentally falling next to a mosque where the ancient city of Letopolis one stood.
