Cosmic Fire Of Creation

The Orion nebula is an enormous cloud of dust and gas where vast numbers of new stars are being forged. Its bright, central region is the home of four massive young stars that shape the nebula. Located in the Milky Way, It's the nearest star formation region to the Earth — just about 1350 light years away. ⁣

Also interesting to note that the light we see in the picture as captured by my camera left Orion more than a thousand years ago — to put it in context — light left Orion when the Roman Empire roamed the world. What we see in the image is how Orion was a 1000+ years ago, in other words — if an alien on Orion had a super powerful alienistic telescope and looked at earth right now - it wouldn't see me or you or our cities and cars, it would see the Roman Empire going about their business. Who said time travel isn’t possible?
