Photo of the day: sinister starry nursery

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has presented a magnificent image of the special star-forming region, designated J025157.5 + 600606.

The image captures a structure with a rather sinister appearance. This is the so-called Free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globules (Greggs).

The published photograph was transmitted to Earth from the NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope. It should be noted that it was on images from this space observatory in 1995 that evaporating gas globules were first reliably identified.

Objects of this type are regions of hydrogen about 100 astronomical units in size. Dense accumulations of gas, enclosed in such structures, can initiate the formation of new stars.
