Orion Region in Suburban Skies
Orion Region in Suburban Skies
Description: Friday night was cold, freezing cold. 5 degrees cold. But with all that cold came beautiful clear skies. Even from my house in the brightly lit Philadelphia suburbs the sky was very clear. This is the Orion region of the sky, ranging from the Hyades in Taurus at the upper right to Sirius in Canis Major at the lower left. Visible just below center is the great Orion Nebula, M42. It looks like a fuzzy pink star in this photo. This image is actually 16 separate photographs, each taken with a 30 second exposure, stacked on top of each other. The light pollution of the suburban sky is very evident, however stars fainter than can be seen by the naked eye are clearly visible throughout this image.
