Mystic Mountain

Mystic Mountain, released for Hubble’s 20th anniversary, reveals a landscape never before studied in such detail. These pillars show the telltale signature of new stars forming at their tips and strong jets of material being ejected into the interstellar medium for great distances. Many such features are seen in the Carina Nebula, a vast area of dust and gas in our Milky Way Galaxy. This is the most obvious and spectacular example, similar to others in an immense Hubble mosaic made a few years before.
