The jewel in Orion’s sword

This chart shows the location of the Orion Nebula (Messier 42) in the sword of the famous constellation of Orion (the Hunter). This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the Orion Nebula itself is highlighted with a red circle on the image. This grand star formation region can be seen with the unaided eye and is an impressive sight in moderate-sized amateur telescopes.
