[146.02] Outflows from Embedded Sources and Young Stellar Objects in the Orion Nebula.

C. R. O'Dell (Vanderbilt University)

The ACS survey of the Orion Nebula offers an unprecedented opportunity for the study of outflows in this region. The F658N filter used transmits the ubiquitous HI line at 6563 A and the common low ionization line of [NII] at 6583 A, thus rendering most low density gaseous components visible. We have found many types of outflow from micro-jets of about 100 AU from some proplyds to parsec scale shocks arising from embedded sources to the southwest of the Trapezium stars.
