Description
Dansk: Carinatågen er en stor lysende stjernetåge, som omslutter adskillige stjernehobe. Den indeholder to af de mest massive og mest lysende stjerner i Mælkevejen: Eta Carinae og HD 93129A. Den er 7.500 lysår væk og strækker sig over omkring 260 lysår, hvilket er mere end 7 gange så meget som Oriontågen. Billedet er dannet fra billeder taget af det danske 1,5m teleskop ved ESOs La Silla-observatorium i Chile.
English: The Carina Nebula is a large bright nebula that surrounds several clusters of stars. It contains two of the most massive and luminous stars in our Milky Way galaxy, Eta Carinae and HD 93129A. Located 7500 light years away, the nebula itself spans some 260 light years across, about 7 times the size of the Orion Nebula, and is shown in all its glory in this mosaic. It is based on images collected with the 1.5-m Danish telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory. Being brighter than one million Suns, Eta Carinae (the brightest star in this image) is the most luminous star known in the Galaxy, and has most likely a mass over 100 times that of the Sun. It is the closest example of a luminous blue variable, the last phase in the life of a very massive star before it explodes in a fiery supernova. Eta Carinae is surrounded by an expanding bipolar cloud of dust and gas known as the Homunculus (little man in Latin), which astronomers believe was expelled from the star during a great outburst seen in 1843.
Français : La Nébuleuse de la Carène est une grande nébuleuse brillante qui entoure plusieurs amas d'étoiles. Elle contient deux des plus massives et des plus brillantes étoiles de la voie lactée, Eta Carinae et HD 93129A. Cette nébuleuse de 260 années lumières de long (7 fois la taille de la nébuleuse d'Orion) est située à 7500 années lumière de nous. Cette image est une mosaïque de plusieurs clichés obtenus à l'aide du télescope danois de 1,5 m de diamètre situé dans l'observatoire de l'ESO à La Silla. Eta Carinae est l'étoile le plus brillante de ce cliché. Cette étoile possède une masse 100 fois supérieure à celle du soleil et brille un million de fois de plus que lui. Cette étoile est l'exemple le plus proche des étoiles variables bleues, la dernière phase de la vie des étoiles très massives avant son explosion sous la forme d'une supernova. Eta Carinae est entourée par un nuage bipolaire en expansion constitué de poussières et de gaz connu sous le nom de l'homunculus. Ce nuage s'est formé suite à la grande éruption de cette étoile observé en 1843.
