With the extremely cold weather of late comes clear skies at night. Now, you won't catch me outside taking photos at 2am, but, if the sky is super clear you might find Mick out there.
This is a photo of the Orion Nebula that Mick took on the weekend, isn't it amazing.
This is what the website Space.com
tell us about the Orion Nebula:
Orion is located 1,500 light-years away and is the nearest region of
massive star-formation to Earth. Located at the center of the Orion
Nebula is a group of four young, massive stars; they are collectively
referred to as the "Trapezium" because of the shape they make. The
Trapezium is surrounded by a halo of 1,000 faint, low-mass stars similar
to the Sun.
