New Delhi:

NASA's space telescope Hubble has captured a stunning image of a newly born star in the universe. The European Space Agency released the picture of the young star IRAS 14568-6304. The star ejects a gas-like substance which will burn through the cloud of dust and gas eventually making the star to shine. 

The Hubble Space Telescope beamed back the star, which is 2280 light-years away, in visible and infrared light. A name has not been given to the newly-born star yet.

Launched into space in 1990, Hubble has 2.4-meter (7.9 ft) mirror, near ultraviolet, visible and near infrared spectra. It has so far beamed back high-resolution pictures with negligible background light. A star is born deep inside dense clouds, known as the Circinus molecular cloud complex, of dust and gas. 

The Infrared Astronomical Satellite, launched in 1983 as a joint project of the US, the UK and the Netherlands discovered the IRAS 14568-6304. The Infrared Astronomical Satellite was launched with the aim to make the first all-sky infrared survey from space. The image captured by Hubble shows a combination of two wavelengths: optical light (blue) and infrared (golden orange).
