Barnard 33 (B 33) - Horse Head Nebula

Introduction | Map | My Own Photos | My Own Observations | References

On this page I collect my observations of the dark nebula B 33, called Horse Head Nebula, in the constellation Orion.

 

Introduction

According to the German Wikipedia, the Horse Head Nebula B 33 is a 3 light years large part of a dark cloud in the constellation Orion, which stands out in front of the red glowing emission nebula IC 434 with a silhouette similar to a horse head. The nebula is about 1500 light years away from earth and therefore appears a quarter of the size of the earth's moon.

Size: 4' (Stoyan), 8' x 6' (Wikipedia)
Distance: 1,300 light years
Rating: * (Stoyan)
