WR32 and Interstellar Clouds in Carina

Explanation: Stars can be like artists. With interstellar gas as a canvas, a massive and tumultuous Wolf-Rayet star has created the picturesque ruffled half-circular filaments called WR32, on the image left. Additionally, the winds and radiation from a small cluster of stars, NGC 3324, have sculpted a 35 light year cavity on the upper right, with its right side appearing as a recognizable face in profile. This region’s popular name is the Gabriela Mistral Nebula for the famous Chilean poet. Together, these interstellar clouds lie about 8,000 light-years away in the Great Carina Nebula, a complex stellar neighborhood harboring numerous clouds of gas and dust rich with imagination inspiring shapes. The featured telescopic view captures these nebulae’s characteristic emission from ionized sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms mapped to the red, green, and blue hues of the popular Hubble Palette.

说明: 恒星有时很像画家。在此例里,一颗狂乱的质量沃夫─瑞叶型恒星,以星际气为画布,在影像的左侧,创造出这些美丽名为WR32的半圆型皱褶。除此之外,小星团NGC 3324的恒星风辐射,在影像的右上方,雕塑出一个跨幅35光年的空穴,其右侧边墙的轮廓看似人脸,因此为它博得以著名智利诗人为名的加夫列拉.米斯特拉尔星云(Gabriela Mistral Nebula)。上述这些大约8,000光年远的星际星云,位在船底大星云,一个邻近、聚集着许多形状常让我们浮想 联翩的气体和尘埃云的复合式天体之内。这幅望远镜主题影像,采用哈伯配色表,把星云内源自电离硫、等原子的特征辐射,分别以红、绿及蓝来上色。
