Hubble Space Telescope Spots Free-Floating EGG

Posted by in category: space

EGGs have very long tails and are approximately 100 AU (astronomical units) across.

They are being photoevaporated more slowly than their lower density surroundings, and so are left behind as the gas around them is driven off.

J025157.5+600606 is a so-called free-floating evaporating gaseous globule (frEGG).
