Orion's missing arrow

After looking at several clusters in Gemini I keep running across an arrow head shaped asterism near Mu Gemini. Now that Saturn is in the same area, I think it is even more noticeable. It is better seen with low powers. Does anyone else also see this shape? I have tried to outline it below in Desktop Universe.

The arrow-shaped Collinder 65 is in that general region but I'm not sure that it's what you saw.
