One Can Only Imagine All That is in Play Here


The Orion Nebula, a very easy target for small telescopes is incredible in itself and just a small fuzzy dot on our night sky.  Within that the Horsehead Nebula could contain 11 trillion Earths all by itself depending on width and depth.

Click the pics but of course Monsieur and Mademoiselle.

A piece of Orion.


A closer look at the Horsehead.

  1. Beautiful! Glad the large belt holds up Orion's pants. 11 trillion Earths is a little more than what I consumed this week and my own belt is complaining.

    1. Just one short comment RN which is over the last 50 years or maybe closer to 30 really, men's interaction with women has gotten much rudder and cruder and increases in all sorts of sex crimes. I don't see it getting any better.

  4. SInce thanks to kid I've been gazing at these images of The Big (ger Picture, more and more I get the feeling that I am little more than a tiny sub-atomic particle in an unbelievably large cauldron of Cosmic Soup.

    It's humbling, but also fascinating.
