10 of the brightest objects in space, that can be seen with the human eye.
Mankind has been watching the sky for thousands of years. Looking at the sky, people searched for an explanation of the creation of the world, trying to understand how seasons change and how to sail the oceans. Whatever the reason, the stars have always been something of a benchmark for the man. We see a lot of stars with the naked eye, but in the universe there are so many things which can only be seen with telescopes. However, there are some very bright objects, which can be seen without a telescope.
The Carina Nebula
Carina Nebula – Interstellar Cloud, completed at the edges of the dust and ionized gases. Nebula is at 6.3 million times brighter than the Sun.

Antares is the third star from Earth, located at a distance of 600 light years. Star is often called the “heart of the scorpion,” as it is the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius.
Aldebaran is the brightest star in the constellation Taurus. Interplanetary probe Pioneer 10 will require about 2 million years, to approach it.
Acrux (Alpha Crucis)
Acrux is one of the most recognizable stars in the night sky. It is part of the Southern Cross (Crux). This star is because of the brightness displayed on the flags of the five countries.
