M42 & M43 - The Warrior GREAT Sword

M42, known as the Orion Nebula, this huge nebula, located in Orion,in the Sword of the warrior, is one of the great wonders of our sky.

I've seen it before thru binoculars, but the real deal is thru a telescope! It's amazing this nebula, so big, so bright.

I had to make several drawings just to calm down.

The sketches were made in the beautiful lands of Alentejo, where the darkest skies lie down here in Portugal.

This was a great summer night,with a clearest sky and many objects seen and sketched.
