On the nature of some non radio emitting Sharpless Hii regions

  • M. Felli
  • M. Perinotto


Thirty four objects appearing in the SharplessCatalogue of HiiRegions with radio flux densities below 0.1 fu* at 1400 MHz, are studied. It is shown that two of them are planetary nebulae, two are reflection nebulae and two weak emission-reflection nebulae. From statistical arguments it is concluded that six may be evolved planetaries while the remaining are faint nearby Hii regions excited by stars of relatively advanced spectral type.
