Carina Nebula’s ‘Mystic Mountain’ | NASA

Within the tempestuous Carina Nebula lies “Mystic Mountain.” This three-light-year-tall cosmic pinnacle, imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 in 2010, is made up primarily of dust and gas, and exhibits signs of intense star-forming activity. The colors in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green) and sulfur (red).

  1. WHOA! 3 entire light years is quite a sight. It’s quite fascinating how the most harsh and mysterious places such as these can give birth to such gorgeous things like stars. I just find that concept really amazing.
    Also, I am aware that I could be late, but I am glad that you have your creative juices flowing again, and are able to blog!
