Visualizing Orion in 3D

Hi everyone, I have just finished my project on visualizing Orion in 3D. Here is the code:
Importing libraries:

%matplotlib notebook
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D

Coordinates

x = [-0.41, 0.57, 0.07, 0.00, -0.29, -0.32,-0.50,-0.23, -0.23]
y = [4.12, 7.71, 2.36, 9.10, 13.35, 8.13, 7.19, 13.25,13.43]
z = [2.06, 0.84, 1.56, 2.07, 2.36, 1.72, 0.66, 1.25,1.38]

2D Visualization

fig = plt.figure()
fig.add_subplot(1,1,1)
plt.scatter(x,y)
plt.show()

3D Visualization

fig_3d = plt.figure()
fig_3d.add_subplot(1,1,1, projection = ā€œ3dā€)
plt.scatter(x,y,z)
plt.show()

I cannot upload the 3D interactive model, but here is a PNG

Please provide feedback and suggestions as to what could I improve

Here is the link to the actual project in Codecademy, if any of you want to refer

Hi Sanyog, nice work!
Remember you can add some titles to it and change the color and markers of the dots :slight_smile: play with it! :smiley:

Thanks for the feedback!!
