Explanation: These two clusters [ http://www.stsci.edu/pubinfo/PR/96/31.html ] of bright, newly formed stars surrounded by a glowing nebula lie 10 million light years away in the dim, irregular galaxy cataloged as NGC 2366. The Hubble Space Telescope image [ http://www.stsci.edu/pubinfo/PR/96/31/A.html ] shows that the youngest cluster, the bottom one at about 2 million years old, is still surrounded by the gas and dust cloud it condensed from, while powerful stellar winds [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap960510.html ] from the stars in the older cluster at the top (4-5 million years old), have begun to clear away its central areas giving the entire nebula an apparent hook shape. Compared to the sun, the stars in these clusters are massive and short lived [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951027.html ]. The brightest one, near the tip of the hook, is a rare Luminous Blue Variable with 30 to 60 times the mass of the sun - similar to the erruptive Eta Carina variable [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap960611.html ] in our own Milky Way. Stars this massive are extremely variable [ http://physics.umd.edu/rgroups/astro-metro/etacar/etacar.html ]. A comparison with ground based images indicates that in three years this star's brightness increased by about 40 times making it currently the brightest star in this dim galaxy [ http://www.stsci.edu/pubinfo/captions/96-31.txt ]. Studies of such distant and diverse galaxies yield clues to the relationships of star formation and galactic evolution [ http://astrosun.phy.ulaval.ca/astro/pub.html ].

Description ISS006-E-28028 (February 2003) --- The Southern Cross (left center), the Coal Sack Nebula (bottom left), and the Carina Nebula (upper right) are visible in this view photographed by astronaut Donald R. Pettit, Expedition Six NASA ISS science officer, on board the International Space Station (ISS). The Carina Nebula is a molecular cloud about 9000 light years from Earth where young stars are forming. The Coal Sack Nebula is an inky-black dust cloud about 2000 light years from Earth. Stars are probably condensing deep inside the Coal Sack, but their light has not yet broken through the cloud?s dense exterior. The Southern Cross, also known as The Crux, is a constellation familiar to southern hemisphere stargazers.

Description ISS006-E-28068 (February 2003) --- Canopus, the second-brightest star in the sky, is visible in this view photographed by astronaut Donald R. Pettit, Expedition Six NASA ISS science officer, on board the International Space Station (ISS). Canopus is about 300 light years from Earth in the southern hemisphere constellation Carina and is a rare class ?F? yellow-white (7800 Kelvin) super giant. It is 65 times wider and 15,000 times more luminous than the Sun and is large enough to stretch three-fourths of the way across Mercury?s orbit.
