The Orion Nebula ~ Ultra HD 4K ~

48,860 views 5 months ago
This image of the Messier 42 (M42) or the Orion Nebula is one of Hubble's sharpest and clearest images ever taken at a resolution of 18000x18000 pixels (download link below).

I would be very glad if you would share my work :)

To watch in original quality goto "Settings" → "Quality" and "1440p or better 2160p 4K"

Interesting facts:
"The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated south[b] of Orion's Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. It has a mass of about 2000 times the mass of the Sun. Older texts frequently refer to the Orion Nebula as the Great Nebula in Orion or the Great Orion Nebula.
The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers have directly observed protoplanetary disks, brown dwarfs, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the nebula. There are also supersonic "bullets" of gas piercing the hydrogen clouds of the Orion Nebula. Each bullet is ten times the diameter of Pluto's orbit and tipped with iron atoms glowing bright blue. They were probably formed one thousand years ago from an unknown violent event." - from Wikipedia.org

If you are a geek ;) and want to download the picture as desktop wallpaper; here is the link but caution TIFF file about 385 MB!
