Anti - Jet in Carina






Oil on Canvas

14" x 11"



This painting is an artistic interpretation of a Hubble (new Wide Field Camera 3) composite image of Carina Nebula, located 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina, made from filters that isolate emission from iron, magnesium, oxygen, hydrogen, and sulfur of the gas and dust in this tempestuous stellar nursery. The colors have been inverted.

The painting depicts the tip of the 3-light-year-long pillar, bathed in the glow of light from hot, massive stars and their scorching radiation and fast streams of charged particles that both sculpture the pillar and stream from the top of the structure.
