SOFIA Traces a Galaxy’s Magnetic Field

The tiny hairs threading the galaxy show the magnetic field lines — ordinarily invisible — that pervade interstellar space. This magnetic field has been imaged using the HAWC+ instrument on SOFIA, a telescope that points out of a Boeing 747 airplane, observing above 99% of the Earth’s infrared-blocking atmosphere. HAWC+ has captured not only the infrared flux of the thermally emitting dust in NGC 1068, but also the polarization of the dust, which tells us what direction the magnetic field points at each location. By piecing this information together, a team led by Enrique Lopez-Rodriguez (SOFIA Science Center) has determined the overall structure of NGC 1068’s magnetic field, finding that it closely traces all the way along the spiral arms of the galaxy (24,000 light-years across!).

CORONA AUSTRALIS

BEST DETAILS :
https://www.astrobin.com/full/6v5jie/D/


This bright reflection nebula, which is located about 420 light years away, was formed when several bright stars became entangled with a dark cloud of dust. The cloud is a star-forming region, with clusters of young stars embedded inside, and consists of three nebulous regions – NGC 6726, NGC 6727, and NGC 6729.

The magnificent globular star cluster NGC 6723 is in the lower corner of the view. Although NGC 6723 appears to be part of the group, it is nearly 30,000 light years away, far beyond the Corona Australis dust clouds.
