Many of the protostars were found in M78, a bright reflection nebula in the Orion constellation, imaged here by the Spitzer Space Telescope. Herschel observations caught 11 young protostars missed by Spitzer due to their cooler temperatures.

A #ReflectionNebula in #Orion | ESA/Hubble - Just weeks after NASA astronauts repaired the Hubble Space Telescope in December 1999, the Hubble Heritage Project snapped this picture of NGC 1999, a nebula in the constellation Orion. The Heritage astronomers, in collaboration with scientists in Texas and Ireland, used Hubble's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) to obtain this colour image.

Hubble Looks at Light and Dark in the Universe

Located in the constellation of Perseus, this star is in the early stages of its life and is still forming into a fully-grown star.

Setting the Dark on Fire A new image from the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope in Chile shows a beautiful view of clouds of cosmic dust in the region of Orion. While these dense interstellar clouds seem dark and obscured in visible-light observations, APEX’s LABOCA camera can detect the heat glow of the dust and reveal the hiding places where new stars are being formed. The image shows the region around the reflection nebula NGC 1999 in visible light, with the APEX observations…

This newly released Hubble images shows the T Tauri star known as V1331 Cyg. - With its helical appearance resembling a snail’s shell, this reflection nebula seems to spiral out from a luminous central star in this new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.

The #Nebula78 is a reflection nebula in the #ConstellationOrion. It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in 1780 and included by Charles Messier in his catalog of comet-like objects that same year. M78 is the brightest diffuse reflection nebula of a group of nebulae that include NGC 2064, NGC 2067 and NGC 2071. This group belongs to the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex and is about 1,600 light years distant from Earth. M78 is easily found in small telescopes as a hazy patch..
