Project: Visualizing the Orion Constellation

Hi community! I have finished the Orion Constellation project. I would love to have your feedback, as this is very important for me to keep learning and growing!

Kudos to you for finishing up. For a bit of feedback, consider adding some labels. Without also reading a wall of text it’s hard to work out what your plot actually is, which is the wrong way to go about using figures. Ideally they can support your point without any additional context; whilst that’s not always possible it’s worth aiming towards whenever possible.

Secondly check your second plot (in 3D) as I believe all scatter points sit at z=0.0 on the xy-plane. This is a consequence of using matplotlib.pyplot.scatter which is a 2D scatter function. You need to be using the .scatter method of the 3D axis you added. Something like the following is the right way to go about using this method-

fig_3d = plt.figure()
ax_3d = plt.subplot(1, 1, 1, projection="3d")
orion_3d_scatter = ax_3d.scatter(x, y, z ...

Thank you so much for the reply!

I learnt about the .scatter method in this project, so this correction was important to me. I noticed the difference already!
