The Orion Nebula is found in the Constellation of Orion (The Hunter) and is one of the brightest nebula in the night sky, a nursery for stellar formation. It can be seen with the naked eye under bright skies as a “fuzzy light” in Orion’s Sword. The constellation can easily be found if you look for a diagonal line of 3 bright stars which is Orion’s Belt.
