Hidden Treasures of M78.
Credit: ESO / Igor Chekalin. M78, about 1,600 light-years away and nestled in the nebula rich constellation Orion, the large, bright, reflection nebula is well-known. This image of M78 was selected as the winner of the Hidden Treasures 2010 astrophotography competition, held by the European Southern Observatory (ESO), it shows amazing details within bluish M78 (centre), embraced in dark, dusty clouds, along with a smaller reflection nebula in the region, NGC 2071 (top). Yellowish and even more compact, the recently discovered, variable McNeil's Nebula is prominent in the scene below and right of centre. Based on data from ESO's WFI camera and 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla, Chile, this image spans just over 0.5 degrees on the sky, about 15 light-years at the estimated distance of M78.

The Blackfoot Indians were a nation of American Indians with four distinctive tribes, one in Montana and the other in Alberta, Canada. Fierce buffalo hunters, this nomadic tribe followed their food source. With no experience in pottery, crafts or agriculture, they relied on the land. While natural food sources and small subsidized, the buffalo were their main source of food, clothing, shelter, tools and weapons. Today the surviving heirs still live on much of the Montana land they had long ago.
