Southern Jewels

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day brings us NGC 3372, The Great Carina Nebula, in the southern hemisphere constellation of Carina. This vast star factory is also home to Eta Carina, a supernova in the making (from our perspective; it's possible Eta Carina has already gone "boom" and we haven't seen the event yet!).
