According to BBC report, this protostar named HH12 is located about 1,300 light years away from Earth. Its picture has excited scientists. They feel that this will give new clues about the existence of stars. We will know how stars were formed. According to the report, the star being born is about 50 thousand years old. Its brightness is not visible in the picture because it is hidden inside a disk of gas and dust. Pink colored jets are coming out from it in different directions.
