James Webb Telescope captures Fiery Hourglass forming new star
NASA launch James Webb Space Telescope in 2021 to discover the outer space.
James Webb recently exposed once-hidden features of the protostar within the dark cloud L1527
It showcased the insights into the formation of a new star
These blazing clouds are within the Taurus star-forming region
It is only visible in infra-red lights, hence Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) is an ideal choice
The protostar itself is hidden from view within the “neck” of this hourglass shape.
The disk, seen in the image as a dark band in front of the bright center, is about the size of our solar system
This view of L1527 provides a window into what our Sun and solar system looked like in their infancy.
