A new point of view on the dynamics of the circumstellar nebula M1-67 around the run-away Wolf-Rayet (WR) star WR 124 is presented. We simulated the outbursts of nebulae with different morphologies, to compare the results to the observed dynamical spectra of M1-67. We found that it has been interacting with the surrounding ISM and has formed a bow shock due to its high velocity of about 180 kms −1 relative to the local ISM. The star is about 1.3 parsec away from the front of this bow shock. The… Expand
In 1997 and 2008 we used the WFPC2 camera on board the Hubble Space Telescope to obtain two sets of narrow-band Hα images of the runaway Wolf-Rayet (WR) star WR 124 surrounded by its nebula M1-67.Expand
The ISM local to the runaway star WR16
Massive stars leave their imprint on the interstellar medium as they radiate their energy and undergo episodes of mass ejection throughout their lives. In this paper, we analyse the case of theExpand
Herschel observations of the nebula M1-67 around the Wolf-Rayet star WR 124
Infrared Herschel imaging and spectroscopic observations of the nebula M1-67 around the Wolf-Rayet star WR 124 have been obtained along with optical imaging observations. The infrared images reveal aExpand
VLA and Effelsberg observations of the interstellar medium around the runaway star WR 124
Aims. We present very large array (VLA) and Effelsberg radio continuum and 21 cm H i line observations of the interstellar medium (ISM) surrounding the runaway star WR 124 and the nebula M 1-67. TheExpand
Searching for evidence of interaction between the Of star HD 229196 and the interstellar medium
Massive stars with strong stellar winds are expected to have a huge impact on their interstellar surroundings, an effect which, in a surprisingly large number of cases, is not observed. This work isExpand
The structure and kinematics of the ISM around HD 192281
Aims. This work aims at investigating the interaction of HD 192281 (O5 Vn((f))p) with its local ISM. The purpose is to analyse the effects that a massive star has on the structure and kinematics ofExpand
Forming a constant density medium close to long gamma-ray bursts
Aims. The progenitor stars of long Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) are thought to be Wolf-Rayet stars, which generate a massive and energetic wind. Nevertheless, about 25 percent of all GRB afterglows lightExpand
Resolving the ionized wind of the post-red supergiant IRC +10 420 with VLTI/AMBER
Aims. The paper investigates the milli-arcsecond scale structure of the present-day wind of the post-red supergiant IRC +10420. Methods. We use three telescopes of the VLT Interferometer inExpand
Integral field spectroscopy of M1-67. A Wolf-Rayet nebula with luminous blue variable nebula appearance
Aims: This work aims to disentangle the morphological, kinematic, and chemical components of the nebula M1-67 to shed light on its process of formation around the central Wolf-Rayet (WR) star WR124.Expand
Runaway stars as progenitors of supernovae and gamma-ray bursts
When a core-collapse supernova occurs in a binary system, the surviving star as well as the compact remnant emerging from the supernova may reach a substantial space velocity. With binary populationExpand


HST WFPC2/Halpha Imagery of the Nebula M1-67: A Clumpy LBV Wind Imprinting Itself on the Nebular Structure?
With the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 we have obtained a deep, Hα image of the relatively young ejection-type nebula M1-67 around the runaway Population I Wolf-Rayet star WRExpand
Chemical composition and origin of nebulae around luminous blue variables
We use the analysis of the heavy element abundances (C, N, O, S) in circumstellar nebulae around luminous blue variables to infer the evolutionary phase in which the material has been ejected. WeExpand
Dynamical instability as the cause of the massive outbursts in eta Carinae and other luminous blue variables
A new type of stellar envelope structure has been computationally discovered at very high stellar masses. The outer part of the envelope resembles a nearly detached, diffusely filled shell overlyingExpand
