Near Orion's belt, only 1400 light years for from us.

Do you wanna go, or stay here?


Very nice. I've never seen this object quite like this. That bright star on the lower right... Alnitak (Zeta Orionis)... is a nice double star, which is wiped-out in this long exposure. The little cluster which was born from this large molecular cloud is also pretty easy to see in a telescope, and in a lesser photo, like this one...

.... you might see why it is also called the Tank Track Nebula...
