NGC 3372 Eta Carina Nebula South

The Eta Carina Nebula is a large bright nebula that has within its boundaries several related open clusters of stars. The dark globules in this image of the southern part of the huge nebula are showing tails pointing directly away from the massive central star Eta-Carina (not in the field). Right of center you see the famous HH-666 taken from the Blanco telescope at CTIO and here  HH-666 taken with the Hubble telescope.
