Panning across VISTA’s view of the Flame Nebula
In this view we pan across the VISTA infrared view of the Flame Nebula (NGC2024) and its dramatic surroundings. We start with the Flame Nebula itself and then pass over the brilliant blue star Zeta Orionis at the end of Orion’s belt. The path then heads south to the ghostly Horsehead Nebula and finally ends at the beautiful nebula NGC2023.
