Description
I wanted to see if my full spectrum camera would be able to capture the red gases surrounding this star system and was glad to see that it did. Nasa just recently published an article indicating that between 1940 and 2014, Eta Carinae has brightened. This is good news for those of us that enjoy looking at these celestial wonders.
