Effects of an Embedded B-star Wind on the Properties of the Near-by Cloud: Ophiuchus

Abstract

Abstract. \(\rho\) Ophiuchii is a group of five B-stars, embedded in a nearby molecular cloud: Ophiuchus, at a distance of \(\sim\) 119 pc. A “bubble”-like structure is found in dust thermal emission around \(\rho\) Oph. The circular structure on the H\(\alpha\) map further indicates that this bubble is phys
