Caption: Orion nebula. Infrared view zooming into a region of the Orion Nebula (M42 and M43), an emission nebula in the constellation Orion, 1350 light years from Earth. Surrounded by clouds of glowing ionized gas and dust, the stars powering this nebula are a tight cluster called the Trapezium. The HAWK-I infrared camera on the European Southern Observatory s Very Large Telescope penetrates the dusty regions of the nebula, exposing many young stars, brown dwarfs and isolated planetary-mass objects.
