Hubble telescope detects a bat signal in space

the hubble space telescope He spotted a bat signal in the cosmos, 1,300 light-years from home. And the bat? It is flapping its wings.

In new observations released Thursday (June 25), Hubble has captured the young star HBC 672, nicknamed Bat Shadow. The distant star, found in the Serpens Nebula, got its nickname because it has a wing-shaped shadow characteristic, which turns out to be so large that it extends about 200 times the diameter of our entire solar system. The star has a planet-forming disk around it that casts this wing-shaped shadow across the star-forming cloudy region.
