When professor Frank Israel graduated at Leiden Observatory some forty years ago, little did he know that one of his theories would be making headlines in 2018—in the form of a 3-D animation on the Internet, no less.
The hunter stands bolt upright in the evening sky, with the nebula visible below the belt This week is a good one for finding the constellation of Orion: it stands bolt upright in the evening sky. The chart shows the view looking due south at 20:00 GMT on 12 February. Show More Summary

The constellation Orion is home to a busy, glowing nebula. Data from telescopes has been used to create a three-minute, three-dimensional tour around its colorful caverns and bright star clusters.
With the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, a NASA team has discovered a patch of low-mass brown dwarf planets in the Orion Nebula with water in their atmospheres, according to a release from NASA. The population of brown dwarfs is the largest known to researchers and they’re all surrounded by a...
This is a video created by NASA using actual visible-light observations from the Hubble Space Telescope and infrared-light observations from the Spitzer Space Telescope and combining them along with some CGI to create a beautiful speed-of-light fly through the Orion Nebula. Show More Summary
"Being able to fly through the nebula's tapestry in three dimensions gives people a much better sense of what the universe is really like," explained the Space Telescope Science Institute's visualization scientist Frank Summers, who led the team that developed...
Astronomers and visualization specialists from NASA's Universe of Learning program have combined visible and infrared vision of the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to create an unprecedented, three-dimensional, fly-through view of the picturesque Orion Nebula, a nearby star-forming region.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered the largest known population of brown dwarfs sprinkled among newborn stars in the Orion Nebula.
Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to peer deep into the vast stellar nursery called the Orion Nebula, astronomers searched for small, faint bodies. What they found was the largest population yet of brown dwarfs—objects that are more massive than planets but do not shine like stars. Show More Summary
Immerse yourself in a visual experience like no other as NASA's space telescopes sweep you through the splendid Orion Nebula.
The constellation of Orion is best visible in the Northern hemisphere during crisp and clear winter nights. It’s very prominent with its four “corner” stars (top two Orion, the hunter’s shoulders, buttom two the hem of his skirt) around the three-in-a line belt and the dangling sword. With camera on tripod and various lenses set … Continue reading "Orion Nebula"
A telescope can reveal the beauty of the universe, such as the Moon's craters, Saturn's rings, and the glowing gas of the Orion nebula. But a telescope isn't just for sightseeing – it is also a scientific instrument.
The Orion nebula is one of the highlights at Jersey City’s Liberty Science Center.
First image from camera newly installed at the Palomar Observatory, California hints at the ‘treasure trove of discoveries’ to come from its survey of the skies The turbulent cosmic cloud known as the Orion nebula has been captured by astronomers with a powerful robotic camera freshly installed at the Palomar Observatory near San Diego in California.

Behold the Orion Nebula's many stars, a gorgeous green aurora, and more dazzling visions of Saturn this week in space.
The European Southern Observatory has spoilt us again with the release of an incredibly detailed 220-megapixel view of the famous Orion Nebula, one of the closest stellar nurseries to Earth. The newly-released image surprised astronomers...Show More Summary
A new image of the Orion Nebula Cluster that reveals the inner workings of the fabulous formation has astronomers thrilled.
