NASA’s telescope captures ghostly blue objects deep in space

Imaging a newborn star, NASA has posted a picture showing bright, ghostly blue objects, which it calls as the ‘smoking gun’, deep in the cosmos.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured glowing bright clumps moving through the cosmos some 1,000 light years away from Earth. The Herbig-Haro objects numbered 7 to 11 (HH 7-11), have been described as clear ‘smoking gun’ evidence of a newly formed star.

In total, there are five of these ghostly blue clumps lying within NGC 1333, a reflection nebula filled with gas and dust and found roughly 1,000 light years away. Moreover, the star which is the source of these Herbig-Haro objects is known as SVS 13, and as seen in the image, all the five blue clusters are moving away from the SVS 13 towards the upper left side.

As per Mashable, newly born starts blast massive amounts of energy-rich matter into space, called plasma. Seen as the vivid blue, ephemeral clumps in the top center of the image, they are telltale signs of an energy-rich gas, or plasma, colliding with a huge collection of dust and gas in deep space.

According to NASA, HH 7-11 are transient creations in the cosmos, as they ‘disappear into nothingness within a few tens of thousands of years’. The blue clumps are traveling at 150,000mph toward the upper left direction.
