Messier galaxies and nebulas?
Posted: Posted February 17th by chiarizio
Edit Report Thread Views

What makes some galaxies and nebulas any neater or messier than any other?
For instance, the Orion Nebula (NGC 1976) is “Messier 42”.
What does that mean?
Does it mean that, when they finally get around to neatening up the nebulae, that one is 42nd on the list?

Thanks 🙏!
I didn’t know his first name.
