Hubble Heritage Project’s First Anniversary. A View of HH 32

March 28th 2014 a friday afternoon


I found this on my wall on Facebook and clicked.  I put it in a new tab so i could view it better.  Then I thought I’d share it with you.  So, here it is.  I hope I copied it all and pasted it in here correctly so that you know who did it and their credits.  It is a fabulous picture Hubble.  I like it.  Mike, who preceded me, would have loved this photograph and the article.

Kindest regards,

me mike


HH 32 is an excellent example of a ‘Herbig-Haro object’, which is formed when young stars eject jets of material back into interstellar space. This object, about 1,000 light-years from Earth, is somewhat older than Hubble’s variable nebula, and the wind from the bright central star has already cleared much of the dust out of the central region, thus exposing the star to direct view.

Many young stars, like the central object in HH 32, are surrounded by disks of gas and dust that form as additional material is attracted gravitationally from the surrounding nebula.
