The new image of the Flame Nebula shows an unprecedented interstellar cloud.

Astronomers released a picture, published In Science Alert, a star-forming region captured at radio wavelengths using the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope reveals Unprecedented details.
to nebula da Chama is located near the famous Horsehead Nebula, part of the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex, in the constellation Orion, one of the regions Best study and photography from the night sky.

“As astronomers like to say, whenever there is a new telescope or instrument around, watch Orion: there is always something new and interesting to discover,” said European Southern Observatory (ESO) astronomer Thomas Stank.

The Orion complex is a vast series of star-forming nebulae stretching hundreds of light years in all directions, starting from About 1000 light years from the solar system. Because it’s so close (cosmologically) so big, it’s an excellent laboratory for studying how to do this. stars are born.
The Flame Nebula is one of many star nurseries from the complex. It is what is classified as emission nebulaThat is, they radiate their own light, unlike reflection nebulae, which glow only with the reflected light of the stars, and dark nebulae, which do not glow, but appear to be made up of shadows, like an abyss in the universe.

What makes an emission nebula glow is the ionization of gases in the nebula by bright radiation from a nearby hot star. Like Young stars are often very hotStar nurseries tend to shine brightly. The Flame Nebula is home to hundreds of newly formed stars, concentrated in its center.

Stars are born in dense clouds of dust and gas, which tend to obscure their presence at optical wavelengths. A machine like APEX, which captures Pictures at radio wavelengthsIt can capture details that our eyes can’t see. In his notes on the Orion complex, Available At arXiv, Stanke and colleagues were able to track molecular flows, gale force winds driven into interstellar space by star-forming processes, and map molecular gas in different regions of the nebula.
The researchers also found a nebula that no one had seen before, almost perfectly circular, indicating the existence of a nebula spherical cloud No stars. They named this object the Cow Nebula Ball and think it can be used Study of cloud structure and dynamics, although more observations need to be made to better understand its nature and properties.
