I would welcome all people interested in astronomy, I recommend the program Stellarium.
What we see here is not like photo of the stars.
The stars are displayed based on the data stored in a database.
Programmers humorous adventurous people, I just know, because I was a programmer.
So maybe, it was only a joke.
Plus it is a photo montage, which is made from the surrounding nebula.

Yes, I was thinking something similar.
Maybe we see a supernova explosion long ago was generated trace star formation?
Unfortunately I'm not an astrophysicist.
Maybe I could have been, if I'm not so lazy to study.
And if I am a member of the Communist Party.
But the circle of stars (seemingly) nearly the same luminosity.
Their B-V index are similar, B0.
They are probabily Blue Giants.

I do not know.
But since I was a young child has an unexplained strange feeling when I look in Orion. This is my favorite constellation. As a Hungarian name of the Reaper. The man that will take you to the afterlife.
Do not even like to turn my back on him.
It is now not take it too seriously, but my feeling is certainly there.
Now that is interesting. The reaper. Hhmmmm....

This opportunity practically can be excluded.
Since we do not see photograph here.
I know that this is not Pope's speciality, but a serious astronomer's acquaintances are certainly for him.
I don't know, it is possible to set him onto this topic?

Or scythe-man, or mower.
You see the scythe flung over his shoulder if you look at the constellation.

Well, you are right SY!
The issue is clarified:
Starship Asterisk* • View topic - Star circle around Sigma Orionis. Coincidence?

Wacky Gyuri

I was going to suggest gravitational lensing, but it seems there is a simpler explanation.

Is it even possible to determine from a single picture?
