Situated just to the north of the Great Orion Nebula we find this celestial treasure. All three types of nebula are visible here, from the subtle
red hues of hydrogen emission, to the vast clouds of dust reflecting the intense light of the young, blue-hot stars, and finally to the murky,
dark folds of dust clouds that are seen only due to their absorption of light beyond.
