Stars and Dust in Corona Australis
Image Credit & Copyright: Eric Coles & Martin Pugh Explanation:
Blue dust clouds and young, energetic stars inhabit this telescopic vista, less than 500 light-years away toward the northern boundary of Corona Australis
, the Southern Crown. The dust clouds effectively block light
from more distant background stars
in the Milky Way
. But the striking complex of reflection nebulas
cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic blue color as light from the region’s bright blue stars is reflected by
the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures
from view stars still in the process
of formation. At the left, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around
young variable star R Coronae Australis
. Just below it, glowing arcs
shocked by outflows from embedded newborn stars are identified as Herbig-Haro objects
. On the sky this field of view spans about one degree, corresponding to almost nine light-years
at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.
