Orion Nebula

Hey Space Placers!

If you go outside at about 10 pm and look to the South you will see one of the most famous and beautiful constellations in the winter, and whole sky - Orion the Hunter. Orion is easy to spot as there are three fairly bright stars that form a line. Below this "belt" of the Hunter is a "fuzzy" spot that is really a huge cloud of gas and dust - a star forming region called a nebula. Check out this link to see a great picture of the nebula
