DescriptionThe Eta Carinae Nebula is a large, complex area of bright and dark nebulosity in the southern constellation of Carina (Car). The larger association Car OB1 and the outer clusters IC 2581, NGC 3293, and NGC 3324 contain numerous OB stars and evolved supergiants, including many M supergiants, whose presence implies an age of about 10 million years for the oldest massive stars in this stellar complex. The cluster Bochum 11 (Bo11) are apparently close to the Carina Nebula and contain several OB stars.
