The Carina Nebula

This annotated map of the Carina Nebula was assembled from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The nebula is one of the largest diffuse nebulae. Although it is four times larger than and even brighter than the famous Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is much less well known because of its location in the southern sky.
