The Orion Nebula: The jewel in the sword

This image shows smaller, particularly interesting areas of ESO Press Photo eso0104a. It shows the delicate tracery created at the so-called Bright Bar, as the intense UV-light and strong winds from the hot Trapezium stars eat their way into the surrounding molecular cloud. Also visible are a number of very young red objects partly hidden in the cloud, waiting to be revealed as new members of the Trapezium Cluster.
