The Horsehead Nebula (also known as Barnard 33) is a small dark nebula in the constellation Orion. One of the most popular Nebula regions in the sky.
The nebula is located just to the south of Alnitak, the easternmost star of Orion’s Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion molecular cloud complex.
The dark Horsehead nebula itself is B33, or Barnard Dark nebula # 33 and red background gas is known as IC434 Emission nebula.
Just below and slightly left is the Blue reflection Nebula NGC2023,
and to the far lower left just below Alnitak(Zeta Orionis) is NGC2024 (Maple Leaf Nebula).
