The Great Orion Nebula, M42 (NGC1976).
The Orion Nebula is the brightest starforming, and the brightest diffuse nebula in the sky, and also one of the brightest deepsky objects at all. Shining with
the brightness of a star of 4th magnitude, it visible to the naked eye under moderately good conditions, and rewarding in telescopes of every size, from the
smallest glasses to the greatest Earth-bound observatories.  It is also a big object in the sky, extending to over 1 degree in diameter,
thus covering more than four times the area of the Full Moon.
