This colourful new image from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile shows the star cluster NGC 3590. These stars shine brightly in front of a dramatic landscape of dark patches of dust and richly hued clouds of glowing gas. This small stellar gathering gives astronomers clues about how these stars form and evolve — as well as giving hints about the structure of our galaxy's pinwheeling arms.

This chart shows the large constellation of Carina, the keel of the ship Argo Navis, of Jason and the Argonauts fame. Most of the stars visible to the naked eye on a clear night are shown. The small star cluster NGC 3590 is shown. It can be seen in a small telescope as a little knot of faint stars in a rich region of the southern Milky Way.
