The #SwordOfOrion - The Orion constellation is noticeable for three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you look closely, you’ll notice a curved line of stars “hanging” from the three Belt stars. These stars represent Orion’s Sword. Look for the Orion Nebula about midway down in the Sword of Orion, otherwise known as M42, a stellar nursery where new stars are being born.

A month in space: galaxies like fireflies, a bridge of hot gas, and a catastrophic decline in cosmic GDP – in pictures

A star cluster once thought to be part of the spectacular Orion Nebula is actually a separate celestial entity. Scientists using the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii found that the star cluster NGC 1980 is a distinct, massive bunch of stars in front of the Orion nebula, which at a range of 1,500 light-years is Earth's closest known star factory. The cluster is huddled unevenly around the star iota Ori at the southern tip of the sword in the famed Orion constellation.
