Dark Horse Nebula

This is my favourite section of the Milky Way Galaxy. To the right of centre is a gas and dust region that takes on the shape of a horse sitting on its bum. It's affectionately known as the Dark Horse Nebula. :)

 

The very bright circle of light above the tractor is the planet Jupiter.
