This stunning image is actually a composite mosaic of many separate exposures. The photograph was made by the ACS instrument on the Hubble Space Telescope and the ESO La Silla 2.2 meter telescope using several different filters, isolating the light of specific elements or of specific broad wavelength ranges. The vibrant colors are a result of assigning different hues to each monochromatic image. The distance to the Orion Nebula is 1,500 light-years and this image is 30 arcminutes (or 13 light-years) square.
