Carina Nebula ...

Carina Nebula - The top image shows in visible light, like this, it is easy to see the wispy dust being pushed away because of the high speed wind and radiation. The lower picture was taken in infrared. Infrared radiation is able to cut through the dust better than visible light, which is why the stars show up more clearly. While the nebula itself is less visible, it is easy to see the new star forming in the middle. (credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team)
