Image size: 0.25°x0.25°. The Eta DSS image. The distance to the Eta Carinae is known fairly accurately because there are nebula spectrum. Eta Carinae is the blue hypergiant star surrounded by the homunculus nebula, about 7,500 light-years away. Eta Carinae is one of the most remarkable stars in the heavens. In a few years, Eta Carinae produced almost as much visible light as a supernova explosion, but it survived. Eta Carinae was first recorded as a 4th magnitude star. Trumpler

Eta Carinae (η Carinae or η Car) is a superbright hypergiant star in the constellation Carina, about 7,500 to 8,000 light-years from the Sun.. There a lot of star clusters in the vicinity of the Eta Carinae nebula. Eta Carinae is estimated to have surface temperatures of around 40,000C (72,000F), seven times as hot as the sun. One remarkable aspect of Eta Carinae is its changing brightness. A Map of the Eta Carinae Nebula. At the heart of the Eta Carinae nebula is one of the most remarkable stars known. On the role of continuum-driven eruptions in the evolution of very massive stars. The Eta Carinae nebula is classified as NGC 3372, it covers about three degrees of the sky which at a distance of 8800 light years corresponds to a diameter of about 460 light years. Eta Carinae. An eruptive variable star, Eta Carinae has expelled a large amount of gas into the surrounding interstellar medium. century and it is now at the limit of naked-eye visibility. stars within it. The Eta Carinae Nebula. That means the outward pressure of their radiation is almost strong enough to counteract gravity. Until recently, Eta Carinae was thought to be the most massive single star, but in 2005 it was proved to be a binary system. The Eta Carinae nebula is classified as NGC 3372, it covers about three degrees of Eta Carinae is a supermassive star.

This star was first cataloged by Edmond Halley in 1677, as a star of fourth magnitude.
