    A work produced at 3 hands and published shortly in the challenge of Eta Carinae in Binocular and Telescope by Dylan, the same one that gave the speech in the NEAF, it is worth to follow the link:

    Reproducing the words of Dylan O'Donnell:
    This mind-bending animation of Eta-car and the expansion of the gases that form the Homunculus was sent to us by Avani Soares who saw Dylan O'Donnell's talk at NEAF and took a third current image to create a small animation that spans 4 years - 2015-2019! Credit also to William Giotto and Rafael Compassi who participated in the work.

    This is taken with a Celestron 14" telescope and ZWO ASI 224MC (2017) and ZWO ASI 290MC (2019) from Brazil. The 2015 image is from William Giotto. The homunculus nebula is thought to only have 10 years worth of puff left in it before it disappears from view. Hopefully this inspires some of your for our Carina Challenge which ends May 1st!

    Your work never ceases to amaze me, Avani. This is a beautiful animation of the dynamics of an object within our galaxy. Compressing four years into barely over a second helps illustrate just how much change actually takes place, and the vastness of scale. Thank you for all that you share with us.
