    Default can't get enough of eta Carinae



    Don't, for heaven's sake, be afraid of talking nonsense! But you must pay attention to your nonsense.
    --L. Wittgenstein

    So when Nature tells you that your nonsense is wrong, try a nonsense that isn't contradicted.

    It's still wonderful. I guess I'm lucky that having some understanding of some phenomena does not jade me.

    Oh it is nothing like that. Eta Carinae was always one of my favorite observing objects since I was a kid. Staring at this intense orange peanut. Then years later the amazing high resolution images of that peanut, and the wonderful mystery that lay behind it, especially as it is a star we have never directly observed
