This infrared image of the Flame Nebula (center) and its surroundings showcases a familiar sight in a new light. The Horsehead Nebula, usually spied using visible light, appears in this case as a wispy, orange-brown arc rising from the green cloud on the right.
The Flame Nebula sits about 1,200 light-years away from Earth within the constellation Orion. The smaller glowing blob between the Flame and the Horsehead is a third nebula, NGC 2023.
