The image was created based on observations using the Hubble Wide Field Camera 3.

The Hubble Space Telescope has discovered a star-forming region known as IRAS 16562-3959. This is reported by the ESA Observatory.

It is located in the Milky Way in the constellation Scorpius, approximately 5900 light years from Earth.

It was noted that at the center of IRAS 16562-3959 there is a massive star – about 30 times larger than the Sun, and it is still in the process of formation.

“At the near-infrared wavelengths to which Hubble is sensitive, the central region appears dark because there is so much dust in its path. However, near-infrared light mainly leaks from two sides – top left and bottom right – where the powerful jet of a massive protostar is emerging from the dust,” the message said.

Also, according to astronomers, this image will help them better understand how the biggest and brightest stars in our galaxy are born.


It was previously reported that scientists discovered an ocean beneath the icy shell of Saturn’s moon Mimas.
