A Second Compact Radio Component Detected in the LMC HII Region N159

  • M. R. Hunt (a1) and J. B. Whiteoak (a2)


The Australia Telescope Compact Array has been used for observations, with arcsecond resolution, of the HII region N159 in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Images at 5 GHz reveal a second compact continuum component which has no obvious counterpart at optical and infrared wavelengths. Observations of HI 10α recombination-line emission, and HI and H2CO absorption, suggest that the object is a compact HII region embedded in a dense obscuring cloud on the edge of N159.
