Orion Region

Still Image (Now)
Animation (300,000 Years)

Orion region, over the next 300,000 years. Some objects to look out for: the stars of Orion, which move very slowly over this time, and Aldebaran and the Hyades (a V-shaped group of stars just right of center). The Hyades are a group of stars close together in space, sharing a common motion through space. You can see the cluster moving to the left, getting smaller and dimmer over time.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
