Happy Fourth of July from Hubble! Resembling a cosmic skyrocket, Herbig-Haro 110 is a geyser of hot gas from a newborn star that splashes up against and ricochets off the dense core of a cloud of molecular hydrogen. Although the plumes of gas look like whiffs of smoke, they are actually billions of times less dense than the smoke from a July 4 firework. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2012/30/image/a/
