birth of a star

Astronomers at the ALMA radio telescope in Chile, have captured images of the birth of a star some 1,400 light-years away from Earth.

The image of Herbig-Haro object HH 46/47 combines radio observations acquired with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) with much shorter wavelength visible light observations from ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT).

You can see a video of the Birth of this star on Space.com.
