Horsehead Nebula in infrared

This is a picture of the famous Horsehead Nebula, shown in infrared. The nebula is part of the Orion constellation, and on a clear day, far away from the city lights, you can just make it out with the naked eye below Orion’s belt. Unfortunately, it takes a big awesome space telescope to see its full glory.
