Three bright blue stars

Astronomers told about three bluish stars Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka.

It is about bright stars, located from east to west (from the lower right corner to the upper left corner). They live in a region known as the Orion Belt.

The three blue super-giants pictured here are much hotter and larger than our own Sun. They lie at a distance of 800 to 1,500 light-years from us, and they were born thanks to the dense interstellar clouds of Orion.

In fact, the clouds of gas and dust in this region have some surprisingly familiar shapes, including the dark Nebula and the Horse Head Nebula, located near the star Alnitak in the lower right corner.
