New Delhi: The birth of anything is such a wonderfully incredible phenomenon. The beauty of the moment is cherished beyond anything else in the world.
This time, however, we aren't talking about the birth of a human being. We're talking about something out of this world – literally.
It's time to welcome a newly born star to the universe. An image of IRAS 14568-6304, the young star, was released by the European Space Agency.
Enveloped in a golden haze of light, the star is shown ejecting a gas-like substance which will eventually burn through the cloud of dust and gas, unveiling the star to shine in all its glory.
Measured to be at least 2280 light-years away, the star was beamed back by the Hubble Space Telescope in visible and infrared light.
The baby star, however, hasn't been given a name as of now.
NASA's space telescope Hubble was launched into space in 1990 and from 1990 up till now, Hubble, with its 2.4-meter (7.9 ft) mirror, near ultraviolet, visible and near infrared spectra, has beamed back extremely high-resolution images with negligible background light.
