NASA Space Telescopes Provide a 3-D Journey Through the Orion Nebula

https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=7035

Quote:
This visualization explores the Orion Nebula using both visible and infrared light. The sequence begins with a wide-field view of the sky showing the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, then zooms down to the scale of the Orion Nebula. The visible light observation (from the Hubble Space Telescope) and the infrared light observation (from the Spitzer Space Telescope) are compared first in two-dimensional images, and then in three-dimensional models.
