The M42 nebula, also known as the Orion Nebula or the Great Orion Nebula, is one of the most famous and easily recognizable astronomical objects in the night sky. It is located in the constellation Orion and is visible to the naked eye as a fuzzy patch of light below Orion's Belt.

The Orion Nebula is a massive and active stellar nursery, where new stars are forming. It is one of the closest regions of ongoing star formation to Earth, located at a distance of approximately 1,344 light-years.
