The nebula is located just to the south of the star Alnitak, which is farthest east on Orion's Belt, and is part of the much larger Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. The nebula was first recorded in 1888 by Scottish astronomer William Fleming. The Horsehead Nebula is approximately 1500 light years from Earth. It is one of the most identifiable nebulae because of its shape which looks like a horse's head.
