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.
Tulip Nebula (Sh2-101/ Cygnus Star Cloud) is a bright emission nebula located about 6000 ly away in Cygnus, some 2° SW of the Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888), & inside the Orion spiral arm of our galaxy. The star that excites the Tulip Nebula area is HDE 227018
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 Jellyfish Nebula (IC 443). IC 443, the Jellyfish Nebula, is a Galactic supernova remnant, in the constellation Gemini, that occurred 8,000 years ago. It is one of the best studied cases of supernova remnants, interacting with surrounding molecular clouds. IC 443 spans about 65 light-years at an estimated distance of 5,000 light-years.
