The near-death of a massive star created this vast peanut-shaped cloud of gas and dust, known as the Homunculus Nebula. It formed as one of the stars of Eta Carinae staged a powerful eruption. It expelled enough gas into space to make several stars as massive as the Sun. The expanding cloud was sculpted by a second star in Eta Carinae, which is also a giant.
The original eruption made Eta Carinae one of the brightest stars in the night sky. The nebula originally cloaked the system, causing it to fade drastically. Today, however, the nebula has expanded and thinned enough to allow more of the light of the stars to shine through, so Eta Carinae is growing brighter.
This image was created from ultraviolet observations by Hubble Space Telescope. In the s, the star known today as Eta Carina put on quite a show: It became the second-brightest star in the night sky, shining many times brighter than ever before. Over the next few decades, though, it faded from sight — only a telescope could reveal its feeble glow. Eta Carina consists of two giant stars. The biggest is about 90 times more massive than the Sun, and five million times brighter.

Mis Saab Siis? - One Shot - Üks Kõigi Ja Kõik Ühe Eest (Osa 1) bubbles contain enough material to make Through Homunculus Nebula - Spherical Disrupted - Live At Maschinenfest 2016 dozen or more Suns.
Over Friends Or Foe - Organiz - Preview, the bubbles expanded and began to cool. That allowed some of the gas to clump together to form solid grains, known as dust. The gas and dust hid the two stars from view. Today, the Homunculus Nebula has expanded enough to allow more light from the stars to escape into space.
So Eta Carina is once again visible to the unaided eye — a faint pinpoint surrounded by a cocoon of its own making.
