The official Instagram page of NASA has shared the picture of Eta Carinae. It is a doomed super-massive star 7,500 light-years away that went through a “Great Eruption” in the 1840s that made it the second-brightest visible star in the sky for over a decade.

“Have you ever seen a slow-motion firework show that lasted…over 150 YEARS?” wrote NASA.

Eta Carinae, shown here in a @NASAHubble image is a doomed super-massive star 7,500 light-years away that went through a ‘Great Eruption’ in the 1840s that made it the second-brightest visible star in the sky for over a decade — it was so bright that sailors at the time used it as an important navigational star in the southern seas,” it added
