Orion's Fingers: New from Gemini Observatory
New from Gemini's newsletter, JUST came in my inbox. "The outflow of the 'Orion Fingers' is evident in this high-resolution image from Bally et al. (2015). The leading fingertips appear in [Fe II] (cyan), and the trailing fingers are evident in molecular hydrogen emission (orange). Comparison with earlier observations shows the motion and morphological changes of the emitting knots."
