This photo revealed previously hidden features to this magnificent molecular cloud. The European telescope peered behind thick clouds of dust and found dusty incubators from which new massive stars are forming. It turns out that this nebula is a stellar nursery to several of the brightest and most massive known stellar giants. One of its massive stars is Eta Carinae, a mysterious and highly unstable star, which was also known as the second brightest star in the night sky for several years.
