Ll Orionis

This beautiful image features the young star LL Orionis interacting with the flow of the Orion Nebula, producing a fast stellar wind. When this collides into the slow moving gas a huge shock wave is formed similar to that produced by a plane travelling at supersonic speed. The small graceful arcing structure just above the centre is LL Ori's cosmic bow shock that is measures about 1/2 light year across.
