All quiet on the Western front? New evidence for massive star formation in Sgr C

Abstract:

We summarize here our recent findings from near-infrared spectroscopy and 1 mm line and continuum observations of a recently identified extended green object (EGO) in Sgr C, whose observational characteristics suggest early-stage massive star formation is taking place. Located on the outskirts of the massive evolved Hii region associated with Sgr C in the Western central molecular zone (CMZ), the EGO measures ~10″ (0.4 pc at 8.5 kpc). We confirm that early-stage star formation is taking place...
