in what part of the constellation Orion is the Orion nebula located at

The Orion nebula is about 1,345 light years away.

Orion is a constellation made up in the minds of the ancients to represent "Orion" a hunter in mythology. The Orion Nebula is a diffuse nebula located south or Orion's belt. It is an area of extensive star formation. It is only called Orion Nebula as it is seen within the constellation of Orion. See related questions

As the Orion Nebula is visible with the naked eye, the only sensible answer would be "by looking at it".

The Orion nebula is part of our own galaxy (the Milky Way). The Orion nebula is about 1500 light-years away from us. Our galaxy is about 100000 light-years across.

Triffid Nebula, Eagle Nebula, Cat's Eye nebula

Orion Nebula is much further from the earth than the Sun is.

I assume you mean the Orion Nebula. Check the Wikipedia article on "Orion Nebula"; specifically, it seems that it has many stars that are very young, in astronomical terms.

The horsehead nebula, aka Barnard 33, within the bright nebula IC434.

The Orion nebula was likely caused by a supernova. It is a huge cloud of gas within which hundreds of new stars are being formed.

The nebula that can be seen without a telescope is the Great Orion nebula.

Some scientists have indicated that the Orion Nebula may be even closer than once believed. According to Rob Jeffries at Keele University in England, the Orion Nebula may be as close as 1300 light years from Earth.

Approx 1,344 light years.

About 400 years ago it was discovered.

The Orion Nebula (M42) is roughly 1300 light-years away from our solar system, which puts it well within the Milky Way galaxy.

Distance to center of Milky Way: about 26,000 light-years. Distance to Orion Nebula: about 1,300 light-years.

The constellation Orion contains at least 4 galaxies.M78 - NGC 2068M43 - De Mairan's NebulaM42 - Orion nebulaIC 434 - Horsehead Nebulaand many other open clusters.Note: These galaxies lie far, far beyond the group of stars delineating the perimeter of the Orion Constellation. By "contain" we just mean we can see these galaxies out the Orion window.

The Horsehead Nebula (also Barnard 33) is a dark nebula in the constellation OrionIt is approximately 1,500 light years from us.

Orion is not a galaxy. It is an open star cluster in the Milky Way. It is also a nebula.

Impossible to answer. Orion is a constellation made up of many stars, each located in a different spacial position. Did you mean the Orion nebula?
