As for the animation showing the Horsehead Nebula animation, it would seem that I lack the necessary equipment to see the animation. Can anyone show me where in the IR image the Horsehad is located, and where the postion is of another important likely infrared nebula, NGC 2023?

P.S. Okay, I think I found the Horsehead by visual inspection. It is barely peeking up out of the wall of infrared nebulosity. That very red crescent near a star is linked to bright ionizing star Sigma Orionis, then?

Saturn is getting smaller (Distant) from us and the rings are slightly lower from its angle. The Serpents storms trailing tail wakes still active and the moon Tethys is visble at top left of rings.

In order to view the animation, you need to install Quicktime. It should then run fine.
