UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has taken a snapshot of a strange star formation that continues to discourage astronomers and scientists even decades after its discovery.
The Hubble Space Telescope NASA managed to photograph a “little-known nebula” called IRAS 05437 + 2502, which is in the constellation Taurus.
In astronomy, a nebula is a celestial object composed of rarefied gas, ionized or interstellar dust.
#HubbleFriday This little-known nebula billows out among the bright stars and dark dust clouds that surround it in this striking image. Unlike many of Hubble’s targets, this object has not been studied in detail and its exact nature is unclear: https://t.co/R667jP6zlX pic.twitter.com/4heC83mJSS

“This little known nebula emerges among the bright stars and clouds of dark dust that surround it in this striking image. Unlike many Hubble targets , this object has not been studied in detail and its exact nature is unclear,” reads a tweet on Hubble’s official account.
Hubble was fortunate enough to capture the astonishing training, because the “busy schedule” of the space telescope usually does not allow such spontaneous observations.
The photo was created from images taken through yellow and infrared filters placed on the surveillance camera of the space probe.
