Astronomers have obtained the most detailed picture of Orion A cloud
Experts of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) have received the most detailed picture of clouds Orion A - the nearest to the Sun, a large "American Idol." And Orion is located at a distance of 1350 light years from Earth. As reported at the Observatory, the picture revealed numerous young stars and other objects normally hidden deep inside dust clouds. The new image, which is part of the VISION sky Ferris, is a montage of images taken in near-infrared VISTA Survey Telescope at ESO Paranal Observatory in Chile.
