Shown in the photo from the top down:
- NGC1977, a bright emission nebula
- M43, small reflection nebula next to M42
- M42, the Orion Nebula.
This marvelous deep-sky object is visible in the winter sky, just below the
"belt" of The Hunter. It appears to the unaided eye as a "soft star."
Some of the nebulosity (gaseous cloudiness) can
be detected through binoculars. A 6-inch reflector shows the tiny Trapezium, 4 newly formed stars,
in the bright middle.
- NGC 1980, the "Running Man" nebula/cluster surrounds Iot Orionis.
