I send you the central part of M. 42, “The great gas nebula in Orion”.
The greenish filaments of gas that surrounds the four stars. Theta Orionis is the most beautiful object you can see in the sky in both small and big telescopes! The central part of the nebula is so bright that it is easily seen with naked eyes in the middle of Orion’s sword.
I made this sketch with crayons (watercolours) on black paper.
The observation from outside Trondheim city, Norway.
Best wishes and dark sky to all artists!! MERRY CHRISTMAS !!
