GGD 27

March 31, 2003
Atlas Image mosaic, covering 12.0´ × 12.0´ (in full mosaic) on the sky, of GGD 27. This object is the center of an active young star formation region obscured optically by dense molecular gas and dust along our line of sight. In the 2MASS near-infrared image a number of point sources in this region can be seen, along with the extended and wispy bipolar reflection nebulosity, which corresponds to a bipolar molecular outflow, with a dynamical age of about 105 years. 1999 Oct 27-Nov 2
