Herbig-Haro objects

Herbig–Haro objects

(hah -roh) (HH objects) Small peculiar bright nebulae, containing concentrations of gas and dust, that have been lit up by the flux of radiation from, for example, T Tauri stars or shocked into excitation in gas outflows from T Tauri stars or other protostellar objects. The latter may give rise to a string of HH objects, aligned along a bipolar outflow.

Astronomers have viewed with greater clarity than ever before a dust-cloaked region of starbirth in the Milky Way, The violent interactions they recorded there may shed new light on luminous knots of gas, known as Herbig-Haro objects, whose origin has been controversial ever since they were discovered in the late 1940s.
