This image, released for Hubble's 17th anniversary, shows a region of star birth and death in the Carina Nebula. The nebula contains at least a dozen brilliant stars that are 50 to 100 times the mass of our Sun.

Carina nebula (NGC containing Eta Carinae. Eta Carinae is one of the biggest stars we know. It is about 100 times “heavier” than our sun and can shine a million times brighter than our sun.

A spectacular NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image reveals the heart of the Lagoon Nebula. Seen as a massive cloud of glowing dust and gas, bombarded by the energetic radiation of new stars, this placid name hides a dramatic reality.

The #CarinaNebula - The Carina Nebula lies at an estimated distance of 6,500 to 10,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation Carina. This nebula is one of the most well studied in astrophysics and has a high rate of star formation. The star-burst in the Carina region started around three million years ago when the nebula’s first generation of newborn stars condensed and ignited in the middle of a huge cloud of cold molecular hydrogen.

The heart of the Carina Nebula: Star Birth in the Extreme. It is a view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth – and death – is taking place.

Oh, such a beautiful purple and blue nebulae. I need to be careful that we don't go too 'deep space'. It's more sky and stars. But still, this is nice.
