Carina Nebula

More than 100 times the mass of our sun, Eta Carina is such a massive star that it can barely hold itself together. Over the years it has brightened and faded as material has exploded away from it's surface. It is believed that it may die in a supernova explosion within our lifetime. Eta Carina sits within the Carina Nebula that is located in the southern portion of our Milky Way galaxy, 10,000 light years from Earth This massive cloud of gas and dust stretches across 200 light years of space.
