For Diwali, I present the Flame and the Horsehead Nebula. This is Barnard 33, a dark nebula in the constellation of Orion. The dark nebula which forms the horse’s head is illuminated from behind by the bright emission nebula IC 434
Right next to the Horsehead Nebula is the Flame Nebula and a small blue reflection nebula NGC 2023.
The Horsehead and the Flame are right by Alnitak, the first star in Orion’s Belt.
