NASA’s Hubble Telescope has captured a stunning image of the Soul Nebula, a bright red region inside a giant object 7,000 light years away.
Fascinating red light from a The small region inside the object is known as Westerhout 5.also called “Soul Nebula”is of great value for astronomical research.

Leaf Space Citing the explanation of the NASA/ESA (US and European space agencies) Hubble operating team, said This red color is due to H-alpha emissionoccurs when high-energy electrons in hydrogen atoms lose energy and release this mysterious light.
This red light also reveals a series of fascinating properties such as the so-called “floating evaporative gas sphere” (frEGG)as a dark, tadpole-shaped area above the left edge of the image.
This FrEGG and its “congeners” belong to a particular type within a larger group called EGG (evaporated gas sphere).
FrEGG appears in nebulae when energetic radiation from hot young stars ionizes the surrounding gas, removing electrons. This causes gas to disperse away from these bright stars in a process called photolysis, which can help prevent star formation in the nebula.
Normal EGGs have a slower photochemical process, which limits protostar formation less.
These strange structures are closely linked to the process of star formation in stars. “nursery stars” of the universe, astronomers are therefore particularly interested.
