Hubble telescope images show fireworks in space provided by explosive star system

If you're a fan of fireworks, you might want to check out this show in space.

The Hubble telescope is capturing amazing colors from a cosmic fireworks show coming from 7,500 light years away.

The source is the double star system named Eta Carinae.

The fireworks-like show started back in the 1840s when the system went through a massive outburst, named "the great eruption," making it one of the brightest stars in Earth's sky at the time.
