Amazing astronomy video showing ESO’s HAWK-I infrared instrument on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile which has been used to peer deeper into the heart of Orion Nebula than ever before.

The spectacular picture reveals about ten times as many brown dwarfs and isolated planetary-mass objects than were previously known.

This discovery poses challenges for the widely accepted scenario for Orion’s star formation history.

An international team has made use of the power of the HAWK-I infrared instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) to produce the deepest and most comprehensive view of the Orion Nebula [1] to date. Not only has this led to an image of spectacular beauty, but it has revealed a great abundance of faint brown dwarfs and isolated planetary-mass objects. The very presence of these low-mass bodies provides an exciting insight into the history of star formation within the nebula itself.

Always a gorgeous sight….even in a 10 inch Newtonian…M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. Looking back in time….wow!

The Orion Nebula has captured my imagination since I was a young child. It's the quintessential representation of beauty for me.

NEbula does not exist. Rocks, dusts and gases exist only on and around the earth. Remove your paintings.

I think I left my house keys in the Orion Nebula, last time I was there.

I would leave this foolish world in a heart beat if I knew I could travel to another one with no problem!

not exactly physical light is it ? it's all black n white until you stick the image thru software to show all the colours assigned to gases …

AMAZING!! A majestic scuplture.

Chuck Hansen says:

The founder of the Seventh-day Adventist church, Ellen White, claimed in a vision in 1848 that the open space in Orion was where God is located: "But after seeing the planets, she seemed to pass over a great distance in the heavens, until she came to the place that is called 'the gap in the sky.' When she began to describe this, Elder Bates rose to his feet in great excitement. 'She is giving a more wonderful description,' he said, 'than any astronomer ever dreamed of.' And still she spoke of its great beauty, with the four great stars far apart as its gates, and the glory, the wonderful glory, shining through. The heavens beyond, she said, made a region more enlightened. This indeed is the gateway from our part of the universe into the central heaven where God dwells." I don't expect that Ellen Whites claim about God dwelling here in Orion to be proven by direct observation anytime soon, but the incredible beauty and glory of Orion is certainly proven by these images.
