Orion constellation

Imaged from ESO's La Silla Observatory, this photograph brilliantly captures the full Orion constellation and arcs of gas and dust weaving through the constellation. Just to the left of the the Hunter's three-star belt is the bright Orion Nebula, one of the most well known star-forming regions.
