A stunning new image from the James Webb Telescope of a star forming

<p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><strong>Weather of Arabia</strong> - The James Webb Space Telescope revealed, on Wednesday, a stunning new image it took of a huge hourglass-shaped cloud of dust around a star in the process of forming. </p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/uploads-2022/221116115144-james-webb-space-telescope-hourglass-star-formation-crop.jpg" style="width: 1200px; height: 800px;" /></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The protostar called &quot;Protostar L1527&quot; is located in the constellation Taurus, and it is only 100,000 years old. It is in the first stage of its formation, and is not yet able to generate its own energy, as there is a rotating black disk of gas (in the neck of the hourglass) surrounding it. Which is about the size of our solar system, providing the star with materials until it reaches &quot;the amount needed to start nuclear fusion.&quot;</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The light from the star &quot;leaks&quot; above and below the disk, making it possible to illuminate the surrounding dust. As for the clouds, they are created by the collision of the materials ejected by the star with the surrounding materials. The dust layer is thinner in the blue sections, while it is thicker in the orange sections.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The US space agency and the European Space Agency said in a joint statement that this view of L1527 provides an idea of what the sun and our solar system looked like in their early stages.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> You may also be interested: <a href="https://www.arabiaweather.com/ar/content/%D8%AA%D9%84%D8%B3%D9%83%D9%88%... &quot;James Webb&quot; telescope is launched into space to be a new eye for humanity on the universe</a></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> These orange and blue clouds, which had not been seen before, were spotted by the telescope&#39;s &quot;Nircam&quot; instrument, which operates in the near infrared that is not visible to the human eye.
