The Horsehead Nebula and other wonders

Astronomers Pete Lawrence and Paul Abel discuss the wonders to be found near a diagonal line of three stars in the constellation Orion known as Orion's Belt. The Horsehead Nebula is very difficult to see, even if you have a large telescope, but star cluster Collinder 70 can be seen with just a pair of binoculars.
