Eta Carinae

Eta Carinae is a morbidly obese star, almost 120 times as huge as the sun. Its grotesque face is covered with massive magnetic storms and sunspots. A smaller, reddish companion circles the behemoth, turning Eta Carinae into an elliptical blob.
A tiny green world circles the pair, while a visiting flying saucer observes the alien scenery.
