N70 Nebula

[Download this picture]

The N 70 Nebula, in the Large Magellanic Cloud has a shell structure and is really a bubble in space. Some of the stars in the cluster near its centre have developed stellar winds, a strong outflow of particles. From the outside, material is attracted towards the cluster, and where the out flowing and in flowing streams meet, heating takes place
