Recently Scientists using the Hubble telescope have discovered thousands of new Orion stars.


www.sciencedaily.com

U.S. scientists say the Hubble Space Telescope has provided an unprecedented look at the Orion Nebula.

The turbulent star formation region is one of astronomy's most dramatic and photogenic celestial objects, astronomers said.
...
In a mosaic containing 1 billion pixels, Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys uncovered thousands of stars never seen before in visible light. Some are merely 1-100th the brightness of previously viewed Orion stars.



The mosaic image of the stars is supposed to be an amazing sight. Hopefully I can find a pic soon. I've already looked at the NASA web site and I didn’t find anything.
