This image of the Keyhole nebula was taken by the Hubble
space telescope. This region, about 8000 light-years
from Earth, is located adjacent to the famous explosive variable
star Eta Carinae, which lies just outside the field of view toward
the upper right. The Carina Nebula also contains several other stars
that are among the hottest and most massive known, each about 10
times as hot, and 100 times as massive, as our Sun.
