The Orion & Running Man Nebulae

Two-frame Mosaic

The Orion Nebula is a vast cloud of dust and gas that resides in the constellation of Orion. This object spans 13 light-years across and contains over 3,000 stars. The nebula is located some 1,500 light-years from Earth, and appears in the winter sky for observers from the northern hemisphere.

Dust and debris orbits many of the stars that reside in this stellar nursery. This debris is thought to show the signs of the beginning of planet formation. Theta -1C, a star that is located in the central region of the Orion Nebula, is 210,000 times brighter than our very own Sun. This star’s surface temperature is roughly 72,000°F, and stellar winds surrounding the central region of the nebula travel at a rate of 22,000 to 112,000 mph.

Henry Draper became the first person to photograph this object in the year 1880, and his image of the Orion Nebula became the first deep-sky photograph ever taken.

The Octopus Galaxy, NGC5033, is a Seyfert spiral galaxy located 43 million light years from Earth. It lies in the constellation Canes Venatici. With a diameter of 100,000 light years, its size is very similar to our own Milky Way. In the center of this galaxy lies a supermassive black hole that powers its active galactic nucleus. The background of the star-field where NGC5033 lies, is littered with distant red-shifted galaxies which are best appreciated in the larger view.

NGC1999, A Reflection Nebula In Orion

Located 1,500 light years away, NGC1999 is a reflection nebula located just south of the Orion Nebula in the constellation of Orion. We see NGC1999 because of the light from variable star V380 Orionis. Recent observations suggest that the dark sideways-T located near the center is a hole blown through the nebula.

A white dwarf star recently exploded to form a Type Ia supernova. Pictured here, SN 2014J is the brightest object in the Cigar Galaxy, Messier 82. Messier 82 is an active starburst type galaxy located approximately 12 million light-years from our Milky Way. SN 2014J can be observed by relatively small ground-based telescopes.

IC 4954, the Little Ghost Nebula, is a reflection nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. Located 8,000 light-years from Earth, this nebula is part of a larger system of newly formed stars. Astronomers estimate the stars in this area to be roughly 4 million years old.

NGC7129 – The Rosebud Nebula

NGC7129 is a reflection nebula that is located approximately 3,300 light-years away towards the constellation Cepheus. This young nebula is less than one million years old. It is about ten light-years wide, and it contains nearly one hundred and thirty thousand stars. Some of the young hot stars located within the nebula are ionizing portions of the cloud which can be seen as isolated regions of red nebulosity. The stellar winds from the same stars are blowing the gas and dust into a rosebud shape. Numerous Herbig Haro jets from newly born stars can also be seen in this image.

Located in the constellation of Sagittarius, the Lagoon Nebula may be one of the most widely observed objects in the nighttime sky. To the unaided eye it appears as a faint patch of cloud that is buried amongst a sea of stars. This emission nebula resides 5,800 light-years away from Earth, and is a very well known region of stellar birth. This area is 3 to 4 times more fruitful in massive star production than other regions.
