Orion offers you a spectacular firework display to celebrate the holiday season and the new year with this new image from the European Southern Observatory (ESO).

But no need to worry, this iconic constellation is neither exploding nor burning.

The "fire" you see in this holiday postcard is Orion's Flame Nebula and its surroundings captured in radio waves—an image that undoubtedly does justice to the nebula's name!

It was taken with the ESO-operated Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX), located on the cold Chajnantor Plateau in Chile's Atacama Desert.

The Flame Nebula is the large feature on the left half of the central, yellow rectangle.

The smaller feature on the right is the reflection nebula NGC 2023.

To the top right of NGC 2023, the iconic Horsehead Nebula seems to emerge heroically from the “flames."

The three objects are part of the Orion cloud, a giant gas structure located between 1300 and 1600 light-years away.

The different colors indicate the velocity of the gas.

The Flame Nebula and its surroundings are moving away from us, with the red clouds in the background receding faster than the yellow ones in the foreground.
