NEW DELHI (BNS): A new and advance image of Nebula NGC 1788, located near the Orion constellation is released by European Organisation for Astronomical Research (ESO).

The Nebula NGC 1788 is said to be a hidden treasure just a few degrees away from the bright stars in Orionís belt primarily looks like an isolated cloud.

According to the ESO press release, NGC 1788 is a reflection nebula, whose gas and dust scatter the light coming from a small cluster of young stars in such a way that the tenuous glow forms a shape evocative of a gigantic bat spreading its wings.

The bright massive stars belonging to the vast stellar groupings in Orion have played a decisive role in shaping NGC 1788 and stimulating the formation of its stars. Due to the stars, a hydrogen gas ablaze in the parts of the nebula facing Orion, leading to the red, almost vertical rim visible in the left half of the image, the release said.
