1305.4211 (Gerardo Ramos-Larios et al.)

Weak and Extended H2 Emission in NGC 6369    [PDF]

Gerardo Ramos-Larios, Martin A. Guerrero, Roberto Vazquez, John. P. Phillips
NGC 6369 is a double-shell PN with a filamentary outer shell or envelope and faint bipolar extensions. We have used ground- and space-based narrowband optical and near-IR images, broadband mid-IR images, optical long-slit echelle spectra, and mid-IR spectra to investigate its physical structure. The observations confirm a bipolar structure for the inner shell of NGC 6369, but they also reveal evidence for H2 and strong polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) emission from a photo-dissociation region (PDR) with molecular inclusions located outside the bright inner shell.
