New mosaic of Orion Nebula
This new mosaic image of the Orion Nebula – created by astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope – was released yesterday (March 17, 2017) by ESA. The large composite image of the nebula’s central region is a combination of visual and near-infrared data.
It is a turbulent place — stars are being born, planetary systems are forming and the radiation unleashed by young massive stars is carving cavities in the nebula and disrupting the growth of smaller, nearby stars.
Bottom line: New mosaic image of the Orion Nebula from the Hubble Space Telescope.
