Question 5:
Have you ever seen the Orion Nebula through a telescope? If so, describe what you saw.
Answer:

The details visible in the Hubble image are not visible through a ground-based telescope. If you have never seen the Orion Nebula through a telescope, you can become a “guest observer” at the MicroObservatory Web site and request that a telescope snap a picture of the star-forming region. Then you can view the image on the Web site. To become a guest observer, go to:
