Astronomy Science ~ As alien craft that crosses the cosmic sea, Zeta Ophiuchi runaway star produce interstellar bow wave curved seen in this stunning infrared portrait.

In view of false color, OPH Zeta bluish star, about 20 times more massive than the Sun, located in the center of the frame, moving to the left at a speed of 24 kilometers per second. This star Features with strong winds preceded it, compressing and heating the dust of interstellar material and forms an arc curving in front.

What makes the star move like that? Zeta OPH possibility of ever becoming a member of the binary star system, the larger companion star and a shorter life. When its companion exploded as a supernova, throwing Zeta OPH out of the system.
