The Orion Spur

The Orion Spur is located at the end of the Orion-Cygnus minor spiral arm of the Milky Way. The Spur is some 3,500 light-years across and approximately 17,000 light-years in length.[1]

Many nebulae and planetary nebulae are to be found within the Orion Spur. Nested within the Spur is also the Local Bubble where the Sol system and most human settlements are to be found.
