Explore Orion Nebula, Constellation Orion, and more!

Constellation Orion, the Hunter, and Sirius, the brightest star of the night sky, shine over Fischbacher Alpen, near Alpine village of Krieglach in Austria. The three brightest stars in this view (Sirius, Rigel at Orion's foot, and Betelgeuse at Orion's shoulder) form a large prominent asterism known as the Winter Triangle.

Who’s visiting who? This chart of solar system exploration shows every robotic space probe currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object… except for the Earth and Sun of course, because there are way to many of those to show on one chart.

During the summer months, the Summer Triangle star formation lights the sky from dusk until dawn. It consists of three bright stars: Vega in the constellation Lyra, Deneb in the constellation Cygnus, and Altair in the constellation Aquila.

Barnard's Loop (catalogue designation Sh 2-276) is an emission nebula in the constellation of Orion. It is part of the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex which also contains the dark Horsehead and bright Orion nebulae. The loop takes the form of a large arc centered approximately on the Orion Nebula. The stars within the Orion Nebula are believed to be responsible for ionizing the loop.
