M42 & M43 The Great Orion Nebula,
Every year I have to at least take one visible light shot of this Sweet and Beautiful Cosmic Flower in the night sky.

The Orion Nebula is a diffuse nebula situated in the Milky Way, being south of Orion’s Belt in the constellation of Orion.
It is one of the brightest nebulae and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky.
M42 is the largest Brightest section of the Nebula Complex, The Trapezium Star Cluster is the brightest section near the center, and
the little Comma shaped section near bottom of the nebula is known as M43.
The Nebulae complex is one of the best to view with a telescope, easily visible in Binoculars, even from the city.
It is 1,344 and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth.
The nebula spans about 24 light years across (139.2 trillion miles)
