DescriptionThis huge cloud of dust dominates the far south sky as seen from a remote mountain site in Mendoza, Argentina.
It is crossed by several dark lanes composed of obscure material and giving the nebula its beautiful appearance.
Is no doubt that Eta Carinae Nebula is one of the finest telescopic objects visible from the south hemisphere.
