NGC 1976, NGC 1977, NGC 1981, NGC 1982, etc., aka M42 Orion Nebula and its close companion, the Running Man… The Orion constellation is always a stunning view in the night sky, but it’s absolutely breathtaking upon close inspection through a telescope. Also visible in the image are the dust and gas clouds, surrounding the complex.
