Location: Eastman Lake, CA
 
Easily one of the most gorgeous objects to view and photograph, the Great Orion Nebula is surely one of the best objects in the winter sky, if not the sky of the entire year. Catalogued as M42 and M43, the main nebula is a large stellar nursery with several hot, young stars, including four in the very center known as the Trapezium. Also visible in this image is the Running Man Nebula, a reflection nebula lit by several bright stars, and catalogued as NGC 1977.
