The Hubble Space Telescope gives us a pearl: a 3D journey inside the Orion Nebula, the true cradle of new stars. Have a good trip
This wonderful video explores Orion Nebula Thanks to visible light observations from the Hubble Space Telescope. As the view moves toward the star-forming region, the glowing gaseous landscape becomes clear. It is illuminated and sculpted by high-energy radiation and powerful stellar winds Huge hot stars In the central block. Orion Nebula It is a real “nursery” for new stars: it is about 1,300 light-years from Earth and has a radius of about 12 light-years. In the following paragraph, here is how to discover the nebula with the naked eye: In the meantime, have a nice trip!
How to detect nebula with the naked eye
To find this famous nebula, you first need to locate the Orion constellation. Winter months in the Northern Hemisphere (Summer months in the Southern Hemisphere) It's the perfect time to keep an eye on it. The constellation is clearly visible due to the presence of three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row (as well as the famous Betelgeuse). These stars represent Orion's belt. Below is the Orion A Nebula Halfway to the Sword of Orion. As a general rule, the higher the Orion constellation is in the sky, the easier it is to see Orion Nebula. From locations in the Northern Hemisphere, Orion heads south and is highest in the sky around midnight from mid-December through January. a clear sky!
