Fig. 12


Sketch illustrating the locations and orientations of the main clusters and clouds in the Carina Nebula Complex. The circles indicate the locations and the approximate sizes of the individual stellar clusters. The orange and red structures indicate the approximate extent of the densest clouds, and the gray rectangles mark the V-shaped lane of dark clouds intersecting the central parts of the Carina Nebula. As indicated by the dashed line and the double arrow, the distance of NGC 3324 and NGC 3293 from the center of the Carina Nebula is actually somewhat greater than in this sketch.
