Anti - Carina Nebula






Oil on Canvas

14" x 28"



This painting is an artistic rendition of one of the largest panoramic images ever taken with Hubble's cameras that has been color inverted. It is a 50-light-year-wide view of the central region of the Carina Nebula where a maelstrom of star birth - and death - is taking place. The immense nebula is an estimated 7,500 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina the Keel (of the old southern constellation Argo Navis, the ship of Jason and the Argonauts, from Greek mythology).  The image is a mosaic of the Carina Nebula taken in the light of neutral hydrogen with color information added - Blue corresponds to sulfur, Magenta to hydrogen, and Red to oxygen emission.
