The Orion Nebula is a giant hydrogen cloud and star-forming region some 1300 light years away in the Galaxy.
Etna It is the highest active volcano in Europe outside the Caucasus[3] and the highest peak in Italy south of the Alps with a current height of 3,326 m (10,912 ft), though this varies with summit eruptions.
