The Kleinmann–Low Nebula is the at the heart of the Orion Nebula, and is the most active star-forming region in it. Because of the thick dust surrounding it, it is observed primarily with infrared light, since visible light cannot pass through it. It is named after Douglas Kleinmann and Frank J. Low, who discovered the nebula in 1967.
