Orion the Hunter is one of the constellations that most people recognize. It's seven bright stars stand out amongst the rest, and its position in the sky allows most people around the world to see it. It is also one of those rare constellations that have a celestial object in it that can be seen with the unaided eye -- the Great Orion Nebula.  

However, there are quite a few celestial objects that can only be seen with magnification or through astrophotography methods. Cameras are often able to record glowing gasses that cannot be observed with human eyes. It often takes hours of exposure time and camera filters to capture the details of these objects.

In this video, we will explore the celestial objects of Orion, including the Great Orion Nebula, the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex, the Horsehead Nebula, the Flame Nebula, and the Jellyfish Nebula. Discover what can be seen with the naked eye and what can be captured with cameras.
