Eta Carinae is an extremely bright and unstable star located a mere stone's throw - astronomically speaking - from Earth at a distance of only about 7,500 light years. The star is thought to be consuming its nuclear fuel at an incredible rate, while quickly drawing closer to its ultimate explosive demise. When it does explode, it will be a spectacular fireworks display seen from Earth, perhaps rivaling the moon in brilliance. Credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/GSFC/M.Corcoran et al.; Optical…
