The Great Nebula in Orion


Explanation:
The Great Nebula in Orion is a colorful place.

Visible to the unaided eye, it appears as a small
fuzzy patch in the constellation of Orion.

Long exposure, digitally sharpened images like this, however, show the
Orion Nebula to be a busy neighborhood of young stars, hot gas, and dark
dust.

The power behind much of the
Orion Nebula
(M42) is the
Trapezium -
four of the brightest stars in the nebula.

Many of the
filamentary structures visible are actually
shock waves - fronts
where fast moving material encounters slow moving gas.

The Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is
located about 1500
light years away in the same
spiral arm of
our Galaxy as the
Sun.
