Sword Of Orion: Orion constellation is known for 3 stars in short straight row called Orion’s Belt. A curved line of stars hangs from the three BELT stars; they're called Orion’s Sword as if a weapon with armor. The Orion Nebula is about midway down in the Sword of Orion, aka M42, a stellar nursery where new stars are being born. #DdO:) - https://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/universe-lights/ - UNIVERSE LIGHTS.

This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun. The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)
