Planet of the ApesEdit

In the 1968 film Planet of the Apes, in 3978 ANSA astronauts Taylor, Dodge, and Landon crash-landed on a planet which they mistakenly believed to be located within the constellation of Orion. Dodge theorized that the planet they were stranded on may have been in orbit around Bellatrix. In truth however, they were actually on Earth, and the star that they briefly mistook for Bellatrix was in fact Earth's sun - Sol. Bellatrix is 240 light years away from Earth.
