The Carina Nebula | ESO

This spectacular European Southern Observatory (ESO) image of the Carina nebula in infrared light reveals the dynamic cloud of interstellar matter and thinly spread gas and dust as never before. The massive stars in the interior of this cosmic bubble emit intense radiation that causes the surrounding gas to glow. By contrast, other regions of the nebula contain dark pillars of dust cloaking newborn stars.
