The Horse Head Nebula is a dark nebula located in the constellation Orion. It is known for its distinctive shape resembling that of a horse's head. The nebula is primarily composed of dust and gas, and is located just south of the star Alnitak, which is one of the three stars that make up Orion's Belt. The Horse Head Nebula is a popular target for amateur astronomers, who often use long exposure photography to capture its striking features.
The Flame Nebula is a bright emission nebula located in the constellation Orion. It is located just to the east of the Horse Head Nebula. The nebula is illuminated by the bright star Alnitak, which is located just to its north. The Flame Nebula is composed primarily of hydrogen gas, and it is often studied by astronomers to better understand the processes involved in the formation and evolution of stars. The nebula is a popular target for both amateur and professional astronomers due to its striking appearance.
Alnitak(the brightest on over the Horsehead Nebula) is a triple star system located in the constellation Orion. It is one of the three stars that make up Orion's Belt, and is the easternmost of the three. The primary star in the system is a blue supergiant, which is one of the brightest stars in the night sky. The star is located approximately 800 light years from Earth, and is believed to be relatively young, with an estimated age of around 6 million years. Alnitak is known to be surrounded by a large disk of dust and gas, which is believed to be the site of ongoing planet formation. The star is also believed to be part of a larger association of young stars, which includes the nearby Horse Head Nebula and Flame Nebula.
Jakob Sahner is a 21 year old German astrophotographer who came into contact with the fascination of space early in his childhood. Very early he began to make projects with image and video editing programs and after graduating from high school he completed an apprenticeship as a photo and media technical assistant. The subject has grabbed him like an addiction although he had no knowledge about this hobby. He just wanted to do it and try it out! In the now more than 4 years he has become a worldwide known astrophotographer and has developed his skills from normal landscape astrophotography to deepsky photography.
