This image of NGC 3576 in
Carina was processed in
the traditional Hubble
palette, but the surrounding
region also contains RGB
data to better show the
star field.  Please direct
your attention to the
structure within the bubble
region towards the right --
does this not resemble the
Statue of Liberty? A higher
