NASA : Hubble Peers into the Storm .- En la tormenta, los compañeros del Telescopio Espacial Hubble

Este disparo desde el telescopio espacial Hubble de NASA / muestra un remolino de gas y polvo oscuro que brilla intensamente en el satélite dentro de una de las galaxias de la Vía Láctea, la Gran Nube de Magallanes (LMC)................Esta escena tormentosa muestra una guardería estelar conocida como N159, una región HII más de 150 años luz de diámetro. N159 contiene muchas estrellas jóvenes y calientes. Estas estrellas emiten luz ultravioleta intensa, que hace que el gas de hidrógeno  brille, con torrenciales vientos estelares, que están labrando surcos, arcos y filamentos del material circundante................
    
milky blue gasses, dark ruddy dust streaks and many stars      
This shot from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows a maelstrom of glowing gas and dark dust within one of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).

This stormy scene shows a stellar nursery known as N159, an HII region over 150 light-years across. N159 contains many hot young stars. These stars are emitting intense ultraviolet light, which causes nearby hydrogen gas to glow, and torrential stellar winds, which are carving out ridges, arcs, and filaments from the surrounding material.

At the heart of this cosmic cloud lies the Papillon Nebula, a butterfly-shaped region of nebulosity. This small, dense object is classified as a High-Excitation Blob, and is thought to be tightly linked to the early stages of massive star formation.

N159 is located over 160,000 light-years away. It resides just south of the Tarantula Nebula (heic1402), another massive star-forming complex within the LMC.  This image comes from Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys.  The region was previously imaged by Hubble’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, which also resolved the Papillon Nebula for the first time.
