In the images, the young stars can be seen releasing hydrogen gas. This is a birth of a brightly light of gas and has been seen in the southern constellation of Vela.
Now, the ESO has released the pictures of the nebula.
After capturing the images of young stars RCW 34 exploding upon hitting the vacuum of space, the astronomers who captured it called their sighting a champagne flow.
In the pictures, hot hydrogen gas can be seen moving toward the edge of the nebula. Throughout the nebula, young stars can be seen forming.
It can be seen in the pictures that the star gas has been dribbling downward from the nebula RCW 34.
The hydrogen gas in the nebula is present around the older stars in the middle. It is found that the gas is less dense on the outer edges of the cluster.
According to some astronomers, the nebula RCW 34 is formed in waves where the first stars have been exploding in the center while the subsequent stars have been forming on the outskirts.
Astronomers from ESO said that the pictures captured by VLT have surprised them. They said that it was not possible to see the core of the nebula as the huge cloud of champagne dust has blocked the view.
Astronomers said that it is important to have a clear view of the stars to know the exact history of the nebula.
ESO said that the nebula exhibits high extinction. Astronomers believe that most of the visible light of the nebula was hidden due to dust, but infrared telescopes helped them to look inside the nebula.
“The presence of ionized hydrogen is common in star-forming nebulas, and is created from the large amount of collapsing gas,” said the astronomers.
