M42 - Orion Nebula
M42 - Orion Nebula
The Orion Nebula is perhaps the most spectacular of all deep sky objects. As nice as the nebula may appear here, this image is nothing compared to the really good pictures you can find elsewhere on the web. If you've never seen this nebula before, its worth searching the net for images taken with high-end amateur or professional gear. The full extent of this nebula is amazing and the level of observable detail is incredible.

A collection of nebula images including planetary and emissions nebula. Nebulas are generally giant clouds of gas and dust found throughout our galaxy. An emmission nebula is one that gives of light due to glowing particles in the dust cloud while a reflective nebula can be seen by starlight reflecting off them.

A planetary nebula is usually caused by a supernove, or star exploding. Other nebula could be made up of dust and gas leftover from the formation of our galaxy. Like snowflakes, no two nebula are exactly the same and it seems that for every general rule about nebula formation, someone inevitably finds one that is somehow different again. Wonderful isn't it?
