The open cluster NGC 3532, also named Wishing
Well or Football cluster, in Carina can be already seen with unaided eyes under
dark skies. NGC 3532 covers approximately the area of the Moon in the sky and
consists of about 400 stars at a distance of 1300 lightyears. The reddish area
in the right is part of some weak emission nebulae which cover the whole area
in this region of the milky way. In the top right corner dims a dark nebula the
light of the background stars, visible in a reduced star density compared to
the other parts of the image.
