d072-135 in short-wavelength NIRCam Orion mosaic in ESASky

This is a screenshot from the ESA Sky platform showing d072-135, one of the interesting objects in the short-wavelength mosaic. This shows a circumstellar disk as a silhouette against the background nebula, being heated and evaporated by the Trapezium stars, forming a colourful tail of molecular and ionised gas. The image can be viewed on ESA Sky here.
