Horsehead nebula
Out of this World
The Horsehead Nebula, also known as Barnard 33, is one of the most famous and recognizable dark nebulae in the night sky. It is located in the Orion constellation and is part of the Flame Nebula, located near Orion's belt. The highlight of the Horsehead Nebula is its distinctive shape, which resembles a horse's head in profile. This shape is created by a dense molecular cloud of cosmic gas and dust that blocks the light behind it, making it a dark nebula. Although the Horsehead Nebula is primarily a dark nebula, it is also associated with star-forming regions. Ultraviolet radiation from nearby young stars illuminates and excites the surrounding gas and dust, causing the nebula to glow faintly at infrared wavelengths. This nebula is a popular object for astronomical observation due to its distinctive shape and its association with other nebulae in the Orion region. The Horsehead Nebula offers a fascinating spectacle for both amateur observers and scientists, who study the processes of star formation and the evolution of interstellar molecular clouds.

More About Out of this World

The planet Earth has proven to be too limiting for our awesome community of panorama photographers. We're getting an increasing number of submissions that depict locations either not on Earth (like Mars, the Moon, and Outer Space in general) or do not realistically represent a geographic location on Earth (either because they have too many special effects or are computer generated) and hence don't strictly qualify for our Panoramic World project.But many of these panoramas are extremely beautiful or popular of both.So, in order to accommodate our esteemed photographers and the huge audience that they attract to 360Cities with their panoramas, we've created a new section (we call it an "area") called "Out of this World" for panoramas like these.Don't let the fact that these panoramas are being placed at the Earth's South Pole fool you - we had to put them somewhere in order not to interfere with our Panoramic World.Welcome aboard on a journey "Out of this World".
