ST~ Barnard's Loop also known as Orions Chariot forms the background cluster of stars to Orion's Belt. Cluster measures 440 x 280 light years. The Pyramid at Giza when measured in the ancient Cubit has a base length of 440 cubits and a base to Apex height of 280 Cubits. Whoever built the Pyramids not only encoded the Orion Constellation but also the dimensions in light years of the Stellar nursery surrounding the constellation. Summary: Either we are from there, or we need to go there.
The cosmic cloud of gas and dust is W33, a massive star-forming complex some 13,000 light-years distant, near the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. So what are all those yellow balls? Citizen scientists of the web-based Milky Way Project found the features they called yellow balls as they scanned many Spitzer images and persistently asked that question of researchers. Now there is an answer. The yellow balls in Spitzer images are identified as an early stage of massive star formation.
The Carina Nebula is a large bright nebula that surrounds several clusters of stars. It contains two of the most massive and luminous stars in our Milky Way galaxy, Eta Carinae and HD 93129A. Located 7500 light years away, the nebula itself spans some 260 light years across, about 7 times the size of the Orion Nebula, and is shown in all its glory in this mosaic. It is based on images collected with the 1.5-m Danish telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory.
