APOD: photo by Farmakopoulos Antonis;  The California Nebula;  Is in the Orion Arm of the Milky Way, as does our Sun, about 1500 ly distance.  Also known as NGC 1499, is an emission nebula;  The bright star to the right is most likely providing the starlight that ionizes much of the nebula's gas; located in Perseus, not far from the Pleiades.

The Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is located about 1500 light years away in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun.

The Great Nebula in Orion is a intriguing place. Visible to the unaided eye, it appears as a small fuzzy patch in the constellation of Orion. But this image, an illusory-color composite of four colors of infrared light taken with the Earth orbiting WISE observatory, shows the Orion Nebula to be a bustling neighborhood or recently formed stars, hot gas, and dark dust.

Mlhovina v souhvězdí Orion. Je od Země vzdálená 1600 světelných let a je pozorovatelná pouhým okem. Je v ní přes 3000 hvězd, čtyři největší v jejím středu. Další vznikají v barevném prachu.  Hubbleův teleskop má 25 let, NASA zveřejnila jeho nejpůsobivější snímky – Novinky.cz

The Carina Nebula (NGC 3324) is a 3-light-year tall pillar of gas and dust surrounding several clusters of stars. Eta Carina & HD 93129A, two of the most massive & luminous stars in the Milky Way, are among them. About 10,000 ly away, it is one of the largest nebulae ever seen (larger & brighter than the Orion nebula) the top is a 3-ly-tall pillar of cool hydrogen being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars.
