History of Eta Carinae

had to sort out the differences between GRB060218/SN 2006aj, SN 2006gy & Eta Carinæ/Homunculus Nebula:

{1} GRB060218 (Aries) is an "oddball" gamma-ray burst w/ a "supernova signature", SN 2006aj (Type Ic?) [+] .

{2} SN 2006gy (Perseus) is a Type II supernova & the "brightest stellar explosion ever recorded" [+].

{3} Eta Carinæ's (Carina) 1843 eruption was a supernova impostor event, which created the Homunculus Nebula.

Aries, Perseus & Carina constellations are all located in the Southern Hemisphere [+][+].

Libra 22° A little child is laughing as the water is turned into an artistic little fountain and as the birds hurry to drink.

Libra 23° A chanticleer mounts the corner post of the fence; never will the day again be greeted with the enthusiasm now born.
