This visualization explores the Orion Nebula as seen in visible-light observations from the Hubble Space Telescope. This movie is designed to be compared and contrasted against the companion movie using infrared-light observations from the Spitzer Space Telescope.

As the camera flies into the star-forming region, it reveals a glowing gaseous landscape that has been illuminated and carved by the high-energy radiation and strong stellar winds from the massive hot stars in the central cluster. The high-resolution visible observations show fine details including the wispy bow shocks and tadpole-shaped proplyds.

Was it just me or did anyone else see an old man with his elbow on a table and his head leaned onto his hand? Ok, I was squinting a bit,, all right ALL RIGHT, I was about to fall asleep but I still say I seen it! 1:05 to 1:15 or so.

Can you tell me speed of camera in light years, please?

And beautiful video too!

Judebox11 says:

except the nebula wouldnt look like that if you were that close to it would it? since its light would be too diffuse

Amazing. Thank you so much

paradisepilgrim says:

Watch it on autoplay and you don't have to hear the symphony of music which whoever has a job making these videos thinks they absolutely HAVE to include just because every expletive deleted in the known universe does the same expletive deleted thing every expletive deleted time on YouTube videos. And it will be that way for all of expletive deleted ETERNITY.
