The Orion Nebula

Orion is one of the most recognizable constellations in the night sky. The nebula in Orion is one of astronomy's most dramatic and photogenic celestial objects. Through the technology of NASA'S Hubble Space Telescope, we are able to have an unprecedented look at this treasure house of beauty in astonishing detail. The prophet Amos tells us who made it for us to see and wonder at its complexity.

“It is the Lord who created the stars, the Pleiades and Orion.

He turns darkness into morning and day into night.

He draws up water from the oceans and pours it down as rain on the land.

The Lord is his name!”

Amos 5:8, New Living Translation
