  • 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… CONTINUE READING
