The Cepheus B (Cep B) molecular cloud and a portion of the nearby Cep OB3b OB association, one of the most active regions of star formation within 1 kpc, have been observed with the Infrared Array Camera detector on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. The goals are to study protoplanetary disk evolution and processes of sequential triggered star formation in the region. Out of ∼400 pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars selected with an earlier Chandra X-ray Observatory observation, ∼95% are identified…

Models for the spectral energy distributions of four stellar objects in the bright compact Hα nebula Cep B are constructed. With a high probability, three of them are found to be very young stellar

The Elephant Trunk Nebula and the Trumpler 37 cluster: contribution of triggered star formation to the total population of an HII region

Rich young stellar clusters produce Hii regions whose expansion into the nearby molecular cloud is thought to trigger the formation of new stars. However, the importance of this mode of star

Using the highest-resolution X-ray observation of the Trumpler 15 star cluster taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory, we estimate the total size of its stellar population by comparing the X-ray

Star Forming Regions

Since the ’80s the Einstein observatory has shown that the Young Stellar Objects (YSOs), emit X-rays with luminosities, in the 0.3–8 keV bandpass, up to 10 3 – 10 4 times than the Sun and that the
