Highlights from a new infrared image of the Orion Nebula

This image shows some highlights from a spectacular new image of the Orion Nebula star-formation region 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.
