It is a diffusion nebula, The Great Orion Nebula is located in the constellation, Orion(the hunter). If you want to find it, look at "Orion's Belt" and go in between Alnilam and Alnitak, the two stars to the left on Orion's Belt. go down and you will see a line of stars, faint, but they are there. take a telescope(for best results) or even binoculars, and look in this region. You will see it right off the bat. It is REALLY hard to miss.
