A3_5_Observations of NewX-1(1436+32)_v2

Owen Littlejohns, Kathryn Hill, Ryan Laird


An explanation for the observations of NewX-1(1436+32) (Raine, 2008) is provided in the form of a young O or B type star irradiating the surrounding interstellar medium, resulting in an extending cloud of ionized Hydrogen, which emits Hydrogen beta (Hβ) flux. The extent of the ionized cloud is investigated by evaluation of the Strömgren radius and is shown to be five orders of magnitude larger than the radius of a possible irradiating star.
