Abstract The hyperfine components of the HCN J=1--0 transition in Orion are observed to be asymmetric. This asymmetry apparently indicates some inhomogeneity of the molecular cloud and is interpreted as due to radial motions in the source. The magnitude of these implied motions is discussed and the sense examined. Alternate interpretations are also discussed.
