Orion Nebula in Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Sulfur Image Credit Copyright: César Blanco González The Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years is about 1500 light years away in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye just below and to the left of the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion.The whole Orion Nebula cloud complex, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years.:

This is a deep image of the Sword of Orion   - the three stars that make up the weapon hanging off the belt of this famous   celestial hunter. The image showcases the amazing mix of physical and optical   processes including atomic emission, Rayleigh scattering, reflection and   absorbtion of light, that go on in this star forming region to create this   kaleidescope of colours and details.

The Keyhole Nebula (which is also known as the Carina Nebula or NGC 3372) is a glowing cloud of gas, dust, and stars some 8000 light years distant toward the constellation Carina. CN is a site of active star formation, and it contains stars that are ten times as hot and 100 times as massive as the Sun. The entire CN is some 200 lights years across.
