Well stranger, meet Carina the Nebula, a tempestuous stellar nursery composed of gas and dust, and located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina.
These huge pictures of the Carina Nebula show one of the most dynamic, complex places we know of in the Milky Way. Hubble’s view of the nebula shows star birth in a new level of detail. The fantasy-like landscape of the nebula is sculpted by the action of outflowing winds (streams of charged particles) and scorching ultraviolet radiation from the monster stars that inhabit this inferno.
