This spectacular infrared image of the Orion Nebula is the deepest view ever of this archetypical star-forming region. The famous Orion Nebula spans about 24 light-years within the constellation of Orion, and is visible from Earth with the naked eye as a fuzzy patch in Orion’s sword. In visible light, it is brightly illuminated by ultraviolet radiation from the many hot stars it contains. In infrared light, however, it is possible to see inside the star-forming clouds and detect fainter objects. This image was obtained using the HAWK-I infrared camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile, and reveals objects as small as brown dwarfs and isolated planets. The new image also reveals an unexpected wealth of very faint planetary-mass objects, which suggests that the Orion Nebula may be forming proportionally far more low-mass objects than do closer and less active star-formation regions.
