Attack Ships On Fire (Out Of Shot)

Behold: just one part of the immense interstellar molecular cloud of NGC 1976, aka Messier 42, aka the Great Nebula in Orion: To wit:

…the part of the nebula’s centre known as M43 is shown as taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye near the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion. The entire Orion Nebula, including both M42 and M43 spans about 40 light years and is located in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun.
