"Some of them were forgotten on purpose and others didn't get recognition until years later - women like Dundee-born Williamina, who was not given the credit for the discovery of the Horsehead Nebula
until 20 years after she found it.
Among her achievements is discovering more than 200 stars, as well as the Horsehead Nebula
- one of the most beautiful natural phenomenon in the galaxy.
One of the most photographed DSOs is the Horsehead Nebula
(B33) in Orion, often sharing the field with the spectacular Flame Nebula (NGC 2024).
Not only is the data the telescope provides incredibly useful, the images are stunning too, like this photo of the Horsehead Nebula
Also known as Barnard 33, the Horsehead Nebula
is a dark cloud in the constellation Orion.
They're also key reference points for locating the rim of the long, dim nebula IC 434 and the dark Horsehead Nebula
intruding across it.
One of those clouds is the famous Horsehead Nebula
, so named due to its resemblance to a horse's head.
Perhaps one of the biggest challenges for the visual observer is trying to see the Horsehead Nebula
Set in a universe where all work is academic, Brittle Star follows the journey of a shipload of prisoner pioneers as they establish a penal colony on a bare yellow planet somewhere near the Horsehead Nebula
. Their crimes silly and their survival skills nonexistent, the prisoners flounder for purpose until a single rebel dares to break from the establishment.
