(illuminated nebula from colliding jets)
A Herbig-Haro object (HH or HHO) is a small, glowing nebula
resulting from the collision of the plasma of a jet from
a protostar with the surrounding ISM. They are found
on the order of a parsec from the protostar. Sometimes the
a single such star has two HHs, star, i.e., from its opposing jets.
They are found in star-forming regions, often near Bok globules.
