The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, by beginners in Astronomy as well as professionals in the field. That's because the Orion Nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers and beginners have directly observed protoplanetary disks, brown dwarfs, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the Orion Nebula.
