The Hubble Space Telescope spotted a free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globule (frEGG) in the Soul Nebula, or Sharpless 199. Here’s the image:

The frEGG is at the upper-left of the image. FrEGGs are interesting because they are dense enough to resist photoevaporation better than the less compact gas around them.

Here’s the link to the full-size image and caption that explains it in greater detail:
