Inside the Flame Nebula. The Flame Nebula stands out in this optical image of the dusty, crowded star forming regions toward Orion's belt, a mere 1,400 light-years away. X-ray data from the Chandra Observatory and infrared images from the Spitzer Space Telescope can take you inside the glowing gas and obscuring dust clouds though.

Inside the Flame #Nebula. Chandra X-ray Observatory (#NASA). #space #astronomy - but it really looks like Horsehead Nebula in Orion, unless I'm mistaken...?

M78 is a section of the cloud just above Orion’s Belt. This image is a combination of 2 views: one in visible light from the Digitized Sky Survey, and the other from the APEX telescope, which can see light in the submillimeter wavelength range. Only cold/cold objects emit at this wavelength - a few degrees above absolute zero. The cold dust is falsely colored and glows orange. The blue material is gas/dust which can be seen in visible light.

The famous Horsehead Nebula is about 1,500 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Orion. The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex.

Wolf-Rayet Nebula is a nebula which surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: 1.HII regions 2.ejecta-type nebulae 3.wind-blown bubbles 4.neutral hydrogen voids and shells (may be associated gas). The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type.
