Kids, I present my latest (and so far greatest) images of the Orion Nebula, Messier 42. This is what astronomers call a star nursery because it’s literally where baby stars come from. See, when a mommy star and a daddy star love each other very much… In other words, it’s a region of deep space […]
The Ring Nebula is a planetary nebula in the mildly northern constellation of Lyra. Such a nebula is formed when a star, during the last stages of its evolution before becoming a white dwarf, expels a vast luminous envelope of ionized gas into the surrounding interstellar space.
Here’s another look at the Orion Nebula, Messier 42. Now that we’re getting deeper into Fall, we’ll start seeing the Orion constellation traverse our night sky earlier and at a higher declination, meaning it’ll become more and more conducive to optimal viewing and imaging conditions.
