Light and Dark
Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day focuses on one of my favorite things in the winter sky of the northern hemisphere: the Orion Nebula, Messier 42, in the constellation of Orion. Nestled within the larger complex is a dark nebula known as the Horsehead. Also can be seen the Flame Nebula, the Running Man Nebula. Can you find any shapes?
