NGC1333 (annotated)

An annotated version of the NGC1333 image which is also in this album. This customised Pixinsight script shows the location of various Herbig Haro (HH) objects.  These are formed when narrow bands of very rapidly moving partially ionized gas, ejected by the proto stars, collide with by nearby gas and dust. The image contains over 20 HH objects, given that about 500 have been discovered, this seemed quite a catch !
