NASA’s hubble telescope discovers newborn star: Watch stunning image

IRAS 14568-6304 star

It always being recognising from the past that birth is one of the incredible phenomena and the beauty of the moment can’t be explained in words.

However, the niche on which the article is not childbirth, it is about something out of the world. It is about the new-born star, IRAS 14568-6304, whose images has been sent out by the European space agency.

The IRAS 14568-6304 is enveloped in a golden haze of light and its seems like it is ejecting some gas like material which will eventually burn through the cloud of dust and gas.

The agency has measured 2280 light-years of distance between our planet and the star, which was beamed back by the Hubble Space Telescope in the visible and infrared light.

The newly born star has yet to get an official name.

Moreover, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990, and remains in operation. With a 2.4-meter (7.9 ft) mirror, Hubble’s four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared spectra. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble. Since, Hubble orbits outside the distortion of Earth’s atmosphere, it enables the telescope to capture some mind blowing and detailed images and reveals information like no other telescope.

Previously, the NASA’s iconic Hubble telescope has captured merging of two galaxies nearly 230 million light-years away from the Earth, in the constellation of Hercules. The stunning image was acquired using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 aboard NASA/ ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
