Orion's head
04/14/11

 

In Greek mythology, Orion was a vain hunter who was banished to the sky. NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, has captured a picture of the hunter's "head" (fuzzy red star in middle). The picture shows a giant nebula around the star -- inflating Orion's head to huge proportions. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA
