Today’s pretty picture

The southern view of my favorite constellation, Orion. The hunter’s three-star belt is in the upper left. The whole thing is moving out of easy nighttime view as we leave winter behind for another year. 

Beauty

Orion again, my favorite. The deep field here, in the belt on the left, with the nebulae in the upper right. When the clouds of the last few days clear out, I’ll look for this winter companion again./NASA
