Zoom to AG Carinae

This visualization starts with a wide-view of the Carina constellation and zooms down to the Hubble Space Telescope view of the massive star, AG Carinae. One of the brightest stars in our galaxy, AG Carinae undergoes eruptions that have ejected a small nebula of gas and dust. The emission from ionized gas glows red, while the dust reflects the light of the star and appears bluish-white.
