The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a striking view of a multiple star system called XZ Tauri, its neighbour HL Tauri and several nearby young stellar objects. XZ Tauri is blowing a hot bubble of gas into the surrounding space, which is filled with bright and beautiful clumps that are emitting strong winds and jets. These objects illuminate the region, creating a truly dramatic scene.

In this image XZ Tauri, HL Tauri and V1213 Tauri – as well as the Herbig-Haro objects HH 150 and HH 30 associated with the latter two – have been highlighted.
