The Becklin-Neugebauer object

Composite (false-) colour image obtained by NAOS-CONICA of the region around the Becklin-Neugebauer object that is deeply embedded in the Orion Nebula. It is based on two exposures, one in the light of shock-excited molecular hydrogen line (H 2 ; wavelength 2.12 µm; here rendered as blue) and one in the broader K-band (2.2 µm; red) from ionized hydrogen. A third (green) image was produced as an "average" of the H 2 and K-band images. The field-of-view measures 20 x 25 arcsec 2, cf. the 1 x 1 arcsec 2 square. North is up and east to the left.
