Within the tempestuous Carina Nebula lies “Mystic Mountain.” This three-light-year-tall cosmic pinnacle, imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 in 2010, is made up primarily of dust and gas, and exhibits signs of intense star-forming activity. The colors in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green) and sulfur (red).

在汹涌的船底座星云中坐落着一座“神秘山”。2010年,哈勃太空望远镜的广角相机3号拍摄到了这个三光年高的宇宙尖塔,它主要由尘埃和气体组成,并显示出强烈的恒星形成活动的迹象。这张合成图中的颜色分别代表了氧(蓝色)、氢和氮(绿色)和硫(红色)的辉光。
