The distribution of interstellar matter in NGC 654

  • W. B. Samson


The young cluster NGC 654 is studied using UBV photographic photometry with a view to determining the distribution of interstellar matter in a region where star formation recently occurred.

NGC 654 is found to be enclosed in a shell of interstellar matter of mass 1500M. The mass of all stars in the cluster is 4000M.
