Description

This fly-through takes the observer on a journey into the famous constellation of Orion, to visit the iconic Horsehead Nebula and its fascinating environment. A new wide-field view from ESA’s Herschel space observatory complements the latest close-up view of the Horsehead by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The new views are combined here with ground-based images from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), the ESO Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA), and the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2).
