Postcard 2017: Orion Nebula/HAWK-I

This spectacular image of the Orion Nebula star-formation region was obtained from multiple exposures using the HAWK-I infrared camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. This is the deepest view ever of this region and reveals more very faint planetary-mass objects than expected. The full resolution image used in this postcard can be viewed and downloaded here.
