Carina Nebula

Celebrating Hubble Telescope 17th anniversary: one of the largest panoramic images taken with Hubble´s cameras. 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.
As Milton said, a work "of the god that hangs the stars at night".
It also has a certain hue reminder of the great mirror-crown-wars depicted on the walls of Bonampak.
