NGC 3576, The Statue of Liberty Nebula, is a bright emission nebula near Eta Carinae in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky-Way. It is approximately 9000 light-years from Earth.  The loops of matter are formed by powerful stellar winds from the newly forming stars within the nebula. In this rendition H-alpha emissions have been mapped to red, S-II to orange-yellow and O-III to blue. The images was completed using data from a remote hosting facility in Chile.
