Where is the Horsehead Nebula located?

Today Nasa had a great image of the Horsehead nebula. The Horsehead nebula is, by far, one of the most recognizable images from space.

So where is it located?

Interestingly enough this remarkable celestial phenomena can be found in one of the most interesting areas within one of the most well known constellations. I am talking about the belt of Orion. Look at the images below and see if you can find the Horsehead!
