This nebula’s popular name, “Tadpole Nebula,” comes from the small feature on its edge at about 10:00 in this image. This rendering has attempted to reveal the plethora of detail available across the entire image, admittedly somewhat humbling the poor Tadpoles in the effort—but, c’est la gare!
Tadpoles, which exist in many active molecular clouds, arise in clouds being actively carved by supersonic winds and intense UV radiation generated from new and young stars. No surprise that multiple new stars, and even multiple clusters of new stars, generate a complexity of winds, radiation, and, consequently, complexity of interactions with their surrounding natal cloud. This image reveals a great deal of turmoil going down; it not that soft fuzzy donut at all. But we all knew that, didn’t we?
