It is the result of the symbiosis between two stars. One of them, great one and fries, loses much matter, it leaves from which it is captured by his small companion and it warms up. The material that is accumulated on the dwarfed star causes violent thermonuclear blasts that expel cloudy gas at great speed forming spectacular like this one.

The images of this section have been taken from the Observatories of the “Roque of the Boys” (ORM), in the island of the Palm, and the THAT, in the Chair (Chile), by the astronomer of the IAC, Corradi Roman.
