M42: Inside the Orion Nebula

The Great Nebula in Orion an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Here, glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1500 light-years away.

Within the boundaries of the constellation Cygnus is the WR 134 Ring Nebula, recognized by the glow of ionized hydrogen and oxygen gas. This is the final phase of massive star evolution; preceding supernova explosion. The stellar winds and final supernovas will enrich the interstellar material with heavy elements to be incorporated in future generations of stars.
