This image shows a section of the Orion constellation, a Winter constellation and favourite among astronomers and astrophotographers. This section shows a portion of the stars on the belt with the Flame (NCG 2024) and Horse Head (NGC 2023) nebulas near the bright star Alnitak, the left star of Orion's belt. On the right, you can see the famous Orion Nebula (M42), the middle "star" of Orion's Sword and the Running Man Nebula (Sh2-279), the top "star" of the sword.
