ESO Image: Orion Nebula

This picture provided by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) shows an image of the Orion Nebula captured using the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.

The nebula offers astronomers a close-up view of a massive star-forming region to help advance our understanding of stellar birth and evolution
