With a moonless and very transparent sky last night, I also didn’t think the ‘arrow’ asterism obvious as a ‘pointer’.

Maybe if you *needed* a direction but then why not stick to the usual end of the Plough?

I wondered if eta Ori might be variable and its eclipsing nature gives an 8-day period from mag 3.26 to 3.48
