NASA clicks formation of a star with Hubble Space Telescope
New Delhi : 'A Star is born', said NASA as they shared a picture of the formation of a new star clicked from the agency's Hubble Space Telescope.
The official Twitter handle @NASAHubble shared the picture and wrote: "A star is born. A stellar tantrum – produced by an infant star in the earliest phase of formation – is captured in this week’s #HubbleFriday image."
NASA in its information on the website claimed that the object seen to evolve is called HH34; it was previously captured by Hubble between 1994 and 2007, and again in glorious detail in 2015. It is about 1,250 light-years from Earth in the Orion Nebula, which is the closest site to earth where formation of stars can be seen easily.
NASA explained the formation "As the jet collides with material surrounding the still-forming star, the shock heats this material and causes it to glow. The result is the colorfully wispy structures, which astronomers refer to as Herbig–Haro objects, billowing across the lower right of this image."
