A NASA probe captured incredible moments to form a distant star, accompanied by a looming “bat” shadow.
The Hubble probe returned magical images to form a star known as HBC 672. The small star is accompanied by a cloud of gas and dust, which helps to feed the stellar entity. However, most surprising is the shadow hovering over the cloud, which looks more like a large interstellar bat.
Moreover, NASA said the “wings” looked “flapping”, caused by the star’s gravity back and forth, and are 1,400 light-years away.
NASA commented on the images: “Astronomers using the previously captured Hubble images have discovered a wonderful snapshot of an invisible disk made of a planet resembling our planet and casting massive shadows through a farthest cloud in a star-forming region.”
“The star is named HBC 672, and the shadow feature is called Bat Shadow because it resembles a pair of wings. It turns out that this title is unexpectedly appropriate because it now appears as if these wings are flapping!”
The 30-year-old Hubble Space Telescope is nearing the end of its life cycle, and NASA’s James Webb (JWST) Telescope is due to replace it next year, describing Hubble’s successor to the point that it will return to the most distant worlds and early moments of the universe.
