In Orions belt is a nebula where large clouds of gas implode in on themselves in a process known as fusion, they reach temperatures of ten million °C, when the process completes they ignite and stars are created into a celestial jewel box.

Thank you Regina, nothing beats the view on a clear night, have seen the orion nebula through my telescope, just a fuzzy patch, nothing like the picture. Tom

Thank you Frank, the night sky facinates me, sadly many towns have too much light pollution now that makes things harder to see. Tom

Indeed, creation never stops...and old creations seem to never die, elements back to basics to be recycled into new form when conditions are favorable. Inspiring write, Tom.
