10 Of The Brightest Objects In Space You Can See With The Naked Eye

Human beings have been looking up towards the stars for a millennia now. Whether this was in an effort to concoct a story for the stars or to aid in the formation of mythology, or perhaps to note the changing seasons and navigate the oceans. Whatever the reason, the stars above have long been some form of guidance for the human race. We can see them with our naked eyes, but there is a lot in the universe we may never seen unless we own a high powered telescope. Some objects are a bit brighter, though. Here are ten of the brightest space objects the naked eye can see.

The Carina Nebula is an interstellar cloud filled to the brim with dust and ionized gases. It is 6,300,000 times brighter than the sun.
