#NEWS #SWD #GREEN2STAY As the closest stellar nursery to our humble planet, the Orion Nebula is a frequent subject of fascination for astrophotographers.

Dust of Orion Nebula glimmers in the cosmic abyss

Dust of the Orion Nebula What surrounds a hotbed of star formation? In the case of the Orion Nebula – dust. The entire Orion field, located about 1600 light years away, is inundated with intricate and picturesque filaments of dust. Opaque to visible light

Jewel of the southern sky, the Great Carina Nebula, also known as NGC 3372, spans over 300 light-years, one of our galaxy's largest star forming regions. Like the smaller, more northerly Great Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is easily visible to the unaided eye, though at a distance of 7,500 light-years it is some 5 times farther away.

Baby stars are creating a light show 1,500 light years away in a cosmic cloud, the Orion nebula. 4 massive stars, called the "Trapezium," are at the center of the Orion constellation. They are represented by the yellow smudge near the center of the image.   Swirls of green reveal hydrogen & sulfur gas that have been heated & ionized. The Orion nebula is the brightest spot in the sword of Orion and our closest massive star-formation factory.  It may contain over 1,000 young stars.

Chaos at the Heart of Orion

This Nasa image captured on April shows baby stars creating chaos light-years away in the cosmic cloud of the Orion Nebula. Four massive stars make up the bright yellow area in the center of this false-color image for the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Few cosmic vistas excite the imagination like the Orion Nebula, an immense stellar nursery some 1,500 light-years away. Spanning about 40 light-years across the region, this infrared image from the Spitzer Space Telescope was constructed from data intended to monitor the brightness of the nebula's young stars, many still surrounded by dusty, planet-forming disks. Orion's young stars are only about 1 million years old, compared to the Sun's age of 4.6 billion years.
