Description

Found near newborn stars, Herbig-Haro objects are particularly intriguing to science. In short, HH objects are formed by stars blowing ionized gas away from the core of the star in two jets at the speed of around 100km per second along the star's axis of rotation. One of these HH objects (number 555 to be exact) can be seen on the top of a dust cloud, looking like whiskers.
