    The Great Nebula in Orion, an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulae. Here, filaments of dark dust and glowing gas surround hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1,500 light-years away. In the featured deep image shown in assigned colors, part of the nebula's center is shown as taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye near the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the constellation Orion. In addition to housing a bright open cluster of stars known as the Trapezium, the Orion Nebula contains many stellar nurseries. These nurseries contain much hydrogen gas, hot young stars, proplyds, and stellar jets spewing material at high speeds. Also known as M42, the Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is located in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun.

    Cosmonauts, astronauts and space observatories have taken dozens, if not hundreds or thousands, of breathtaking photos this year, affording us the opportunity to sample their view of galaxies, nebulae, distant stars and planets.

    The following gallery contains some of the more spectacular pictures of things that lie far away from our planet, provided by people who study the vast expanses of deep space. Browse it and see what lurks beyond our sky.
