NGC 1977 Running Across Orion

The late November 2014 starscape at Frosty Drew is fantastic. The excellent collection of Winter objects become quite visible and cooler temps make for bug free shooting sessions. This is a shot of NGC 1977: The Running Man Nebula. NGC 1977 is a reflection nebula that resides in the constellation Orion and lies 1,500 light years distant. The Running Man is part of the larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. I shot this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA
