Unveiling the circumstellar environment toward a massive young stellar object (Paron, Fariña, Ortega+, 2013, A&A, 559, L2) at NOVA

We discovered a cone shaped nebula that has an opening angle of about 90° and extends eastward of the IR source 2MASS J19142564+1109283, which is very likely a massive young stellar object (MYSO). This morphology suggests a cavity that was cleared in the circumstellar material, and its emission may arise from scattered continuum light, warm dust, and probably also from emission lines from shock-excited gas. The nebula, which presents arc-like features, is connected with the IR source through a jet-like structure, which is aligned with the blueshifted CO outflow found in a previous study.
