We present narrow and broad K-band observations of the Class 0/I source IRAS 18148-0440 that span 17 years. The infrared nebula associated with this protostar in the L483 dark cloud is both morphologically and photometrically variable on a timescale of only a few months. This nebula appears to be an infrared analog to other well known optically visible variable nebulae associated with young stars, such as Hubble's Variable Nebula. Along with Cepheus A, this is one of the first large variable… 

Time variability in the bipolar scattered light nebula of L1527 IRS: a possible warped inner disk

Context. The bipolar outflows associated with low-mass protostars create cavities in the infalling envelope. These cavities are illuminated by the central protostar and inner disk, creating a bipolar

Eruptive Variable Stars and Outflows in Serpens NW

We study the outflow activity, photometric variability, and morphology of three very young stellar objects in the Serpens NW star-forming region: OO Serpentis, EC 37 (V370 Ser), and EC 53 (V371 Ser).

THE BRIGHTENING OF Re50N: ACCRETION EVENT OR DUST CLEARING?

The luminous Class I protostar HBC 494, embedded in the Orion A cloud, is associated with a pair of reflection nebulae, Re50 and Re50N, which appeared sometime between 1955 and 1979. We have found

SIMULTANEOUS MONITORING OF THE PHOTOMETRIC AND POLARIMETRIC ACTIVITY OF THE YOUNG STAR PV Cep IN THE OPTICAL/NEAR-INFRARED BANDS

We present the results of a simultaneous monitoring, lasting more than two years, of the optical and near-infrared photometric and polarimetric activity of the variable protostar PV Cep. During the

Dissecting the Different Components of the Modest Accretion Bursts of the Very Young Protostar HOPS 373

Observed changes in protostellar brightness can be complicated to interpret. In our James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) Transient Monitoring Survey, we discovered that a young binary protostar, HOPS

Variability and Jet Activity in the YSO MHO 3252 Y3 in Serpens South

The infrared young stellar outflow source MHO 3252 Y3 in the Serpens South star-forming region was found to be variable. The available photometric data can be fitted with a double-peaked light curve

Constraining Spatial Densities of Early Ice Formation in Small Dense Molecular Cores from Extinction Maps

Tracing dust in small dense molecular cores is a powerful tool to study the conditions required for ices to form during the prestellar phase. To study these environments, five molecular cores were

THE VARIABLE REFLECTION NEBULA CEPHEUS A EAST

We report K′-band imaging observations of the reflection nebula associated with Cepheus A East covering the time interval from 1990 to 2004. Over this time the reflection nebula shows variations of

Observations of the Onset of Complex Organic Molecule Formation in Interstellar Ices

Isolated dense molecular cores are investigated to study the onset of complex organic molecule formation in interstellar ice. Sampling three cores with ongoing formation of low-mass stars (B59, B335,

Commissioning of the infrared imaging survey (IRIS) system

The Infrared Imaging System (IRIS) is a 0.8m telescope and a 1024×1024 pixels camera (IRISCAM) with a HAWAII-1 detector array. IRIS is located at the Cerro Armazones Observatory in Chile that is

Infrared Nebulae around Young Stellar Objects

We present a K-band atlas of 106 reflection nebulae, 41 of which are new discoveries. We observed these nebulae with the University of Hawaii 2.2 m telescope in the course of an imaging survey of 197

IRAS 05436-0007 and the emergence of McNeil's Nebula

We present a study of McNeil's Nebula, a newly appeared reflection nebula in the L1630 cloud, together with photometry and spectroscopy of its source. New IR photometry compared with earlier Two

McNeil's Nebula in Orion: The outburst history

We present a sequence of I-band images obtained at the Venezuela 1 m Schmidt telescope during the outburst of the nebula recently discovered by J. W. McNeil in the Orion L1630 molecular cloud. We

Optical and infrared properties of V1647 Orionis during the 2003-2006 outburst I. The reflection nebula

Aims. The recent outburst of the young eruptive star V1647 Orionis has produced a spectacular appearance of a new reflection nebula in Orion (McNeil’s nebula). We present an optical/near infrared

Small-Scale Structure of the Circumstellar Gas around the Very Young Outflow-Driving Source L483-FIR

A remarkable young stellar object in L483 numbers among the fewer than a dozen known youngest protostars, those with "class 0" spectral energy distributions. We report high angular and spectral

A Disk Shadow around the Young Star ASR 41 in NGC 1333

We present images of the young stellar object ASR 41 in the NGC 1333 star-forming region at the wavelengths of Hα and [S II] and in the I, J, H, and K bands. ASR 41 has the near-infrared morphology

Projection of circumstellar disks on their environments

We use a 3D Monte Carlo radiative transfer code to study the projection of large shadows by circumstellar disks around young stellar objects on surrounding reflection nebulosity. It is shown that for

Crucial steps in the formation of stars and planets can be studied only at mid‐ to far‐infrared wavelengths, where the Space Infrared Telescope (SIRTF) provides an unprecedented improvement in

A wide-latitude CO survey of molecular clouds in the northern Milky Way

It is now well established that molecular clouds are an important part of the interstellar medium, containing much or most of the dense, cold component of the gas, and producing the massive stars and
