This picture is so unreal. It's almost frightening.

:-?

What about it? Are you saying this is the first time you've run across the Eta Carinae Nebula, and you find it amazing? It's true - that is one amazing picture, but the Hubble has taken literally hundreds of similar pictures.

Look up The Pillars of Creation. That'll get you going. ;-D

Me too. Break the picture in 6ths (3 across and 2 down). Upper left looks like a side profile of the predator. Upper middle looks like a frontal shot of an "alien". 8-o :-b
