Carina Nebula. Zoom out view of the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) created with imagery from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The nebula has a diameter of over 200 light years and is one of the largest diffuse nebulae. It is visible from the southern hemisphere. Its great pillars of gas and dust are sculpted by radiation and streams of charged particles from hot, massive stars within the nebula. In the pillars themselves new stars are forming. The Carina Nebula is 7500 light years from Earth, in the constellation of Carina.
