NGC 7635: The Bubble Nebula Expanding
Image Credit: Göran Nilsson & The Liverpool TelescopeExplanation:
It’s the bubble versus the cloud. NGC 7635, the Bubble Nebula
, is being pushed out by the stellar wind
of massive star BD+602522
, visible in blue toward the right, inside the nebula. Next door, though, lives a giantmolecular cloud
, visible to the far right in red. At this place in space, an irresistible force
meets an immovable object
in an interesting way. The cloud
is able to contain the expansion of the bubble gas, but gets blasted by the hot radiation from the bubble
‘s central star. The radiation
heats up dense regions of the molecular cloud
causing it to glow. The Bubble Nebula
, pictured here
is about 10 light-years
across and part of a much larger complex
of stars and shells. The Bubble Nebula
can be seen with a small telescope towards the constellation
of the Queen of Aethiopia
