The large red band, framing Orion's belt, is Barnard's Loop. The 3rd star, from the right, is Alnitak. This is where the Horsehead and Flaming Tree Nebula can be found. Due south of there is the Orion Nebula M42. Just above is the Orion extension or M43. Above that is "The Running Man" Nebula (so named by Jason Ware) or NGC 1973-75-77.
