News! On this day, December 5, 2009, Hubble was taking a photo shoot. At that time, photography was one of the brightest nebulae, which is still one of the best nebulae in the sky during the night (on Earth). He photographed this glowing nebula in the Carina arm of the Milky Way. 

Thus, the nebula is at approx. 20,000 light-years from us. But for that, high-performance telescopes can see it quite clearly. And, the image above shows that the nebula, as well as what is around the nebula, contains some of the most massive known stars. And these stars are very bright. thus being able to be easily seen from Earth. All the stars you see above, unfortunately, die quickly, exploding into supernovae. The phenomenon is not clear, but there are theories. 

The above stars live a little longer compared to other stars, and after this period, they explode into supernovae. The nebula was first discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1834. And since then, astronomers have considered it the brightest nebula visible in the visible light of the Milky Way.

We wish Hubble and NASA continued success in taking such photos.
