These two images were both taken by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 and showcase the Carina Nebula about 6,500-10,000 light years away. The top image shows what a 3-light-year-long portion of the nebula looks like in visible light. With this view, it is easy to see the wispy dust being pushed away because of the high speed wind and radiation.
The lower picture was taken in infrared. Infrared radiation is able to cut through the dust better than visible light, which is why the stars show up more clearly. While the nebula itself is less visible, it is easy to see the new star forming in the middle.
