Tarantula Nebula


The Tarantula Nebula is part of the Large Magellanic Cloud (160,000 light years away). It is the most active star nursery in our galactic neighborhood. And it is massive. If the tarantula nebula was as close as the Orion nebula, it would take up 30° in the sky. So far I considered eta Carina as my favorite DSO... I'm not sure anymore.
