Light and Shadow around Haro5a
Just a pretty scene a small distance north of the bright part of the Orion Nebula. Near-infrared imagery allows us to see quite a bit more than we normally might. Almost anything bright you see here is a hole in a denser cloud of dust where stars are forming. The stars blow holes out of the clouds as they are forming, leaving some gaps for light to escape.
This is only a single filter image, so none of the color is real. It has only been added for visual interest.
