Away from the famous Eta Carinae Nebula are many very interesting objects in the constellation Carina. In addition to a variety of objects (NGC 3603, 3586, 3576, 3590, 3572, 3519, 3503) is especially the open cluster NGC 3532 „The Firefly Party Cluster“ to mention. He is certainly one of the most beautiful open clusters and comprises some 150 stars.
