Description

The Great Carina Nebula under a highly populated area. The Carina nebula is one of my preferred deep sky objects for it is very large and contains several embedded structures, including bright and dark nebulae and star clusters. It also contains the Eta Carina star, a star with an anomalous behavior that may explode in the upcoming years (or millions years).
