The Eighty Six H$$\alpha $$α Spectra from the Orion Nebula (M42, Sh2-281) with DEFPOS
In this study, eighty six $$\hbox {H}\alpha $$Hα (6563 Å) emission line spectra from the central region ($$\sim $$∼$$40^{\prime }\times \, 40^{\prime }$$40′×40′) of the Orion Nebula (NGC1976, M42,Expand
The Ionization Structure of Sharpless 2-264: Multiwavelength Observations of the {\lambda} Ori H II Region
We present velocity-resolved maps taken with the Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper (WHAM) in H{\alpha}, [S II] {\lambda}6716, and [N II] {\lambda}6583 around the well-known O8 III star {\lambda} Ori A (HDExpand
A survey of the Galactic plane for dispersed radio pulses with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder
We report the results from a survey of the Galactic plane for dispersed single pulses using the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP). We searched for rare bright dispersed radio pulses comprising 160Expand
Discovery of GeV gamma-ray emission from the LMC B0443-6657 with the Fermi Large Area Telescope
We report the discovery of gamma-ray detection from the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) B0443-6657 using the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. LMC B0443-6657 is aExpand
Through thick or thin: multiple components of the magneto-ionic medium towards the nearby H ii region Sharpless 2–27 revealed by Faraday tomography
Sharpless 2-27 (Sh2-27) is a nearby ${\rm H\,{\small II}}$ region excited by $\zeta$Oph. We present observations of polarized radio emission from 300 to 480$\,$MHz towards Sh2-27, made with theExpand
Detailed CO ($J$ = 1--0, 2--1 and 3--2) observations toward an H{\sc ii} region RCW~32 in the Vela Molecular Ridge
We made CO ($J$=1--0, 2--1, and 3--2) observations toward an H{\sc ii} region RCW~32 in the Vela Molecular Ridge. The CO gas distribution associated with the H{\sc ii} region was revealed for theExpand
A highly collimated jet from the Red Square nebula MWC 922
Deep, narrow-band \Ha\ and 6584 \AA\ [\Nii ] CCD images of the peculiar, infrared excess B[e] star MWC~922 reveal a collimated, bipolar jet orthogonal to the previously detected extended nebula. TheExpand
Widely Extended [OIII] 88 um Line Emission around the 30 Doradus Region Revealed with AKARI FIS-FTS
We present the distribution map of the far-infrared [OIII] 88um line emission around the 30 Doradus (30 Dor) region in the Large Magellanic Cloud obtained with the Fourier Transform Spectrometer ofExpand
IR-correlated 31 GHz radio emission from Orion East
Lynds dark cloud LDN1622 represents one of the best examples of anomalous dust emission, possibly originating from small spinning dust grains. We present Cosmic Background Imager (CBI) 31 GHz data ofExpand
Tracking the Footprints of the Radio Pulsar B1727–47: Proper Motion, Host Supernova Remnant, and the Glitches
The bright radio pulsar B1727$-$47 with a characteristic age of 80 kyr is among the first pulsars discovered 50 yr ago. Using its regular timing observations and interferometric positions at threeExpand
