The ALMA radio telescope -- a joint venture between North America, Europe and Asia -- recorded the images from the birth.
According the SPACE.com, the images show the "nascent star about 1,400 light-years from Earth unleashing material at nearly 84,477 mph (144,000 km/h), which then crashes into surrounding gas, causing it to glow."
ALMA (the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) is one of the largest ground-based astronomy projects in the world and will be the major new facility for observations in the millimeter/submillimeter regime. It is located in the Atacama desert of northern Chile.
