This extraordinary image taken by the Gemini South 8.2-m telescope depicts hot bullets of gas tracing their way through the Orion Nebula. The Orion Bullets have been ejected from the Trapezium cluster of bright, young stars at the heart of the star-forming region. In this false-colour infrared view, the blue bullets are clumps of hot gas (around 5000 K) with a size of about 10 times Pluto’s orbit. Traveling with a speed of about 400 km/s they leave behind the orange cone-shaped wakes of shock-heated gas.
