As you can see is composed of two types of clouds, right dense clouds (actually less dense than Earth’s atmosphere) of black color that absorb light and left clouds of hydrogen.

As always happens when these two things come together in the union area birth of stars where we have new and emerging stars in a million years is observed.

This nebula is very visible except that only can be seen in the southern hemisphere and highlighting the Eta Carinae, a star like our sun 200 times and that is a lot of times more luminous.
