This stunning picture of the Great Orion Nebula captured by AAAD member Sneh Kesari. Brilliant shot dude, keep it up!!
The Orion nebula is a region of stellar forming region located in the sword of the constellation Orion. The hue of the cloud is predominantly red, due to the Hydrogen alpha spectral emission at 653 nm caused by fusion of Hydrogen into Helium
Seen above the nebula is a reflection nebula called NGC1977 or the running man nebula. It gets its name from the obvious shape of the dark patch
