X-ray emission from wind blown interstellar bubbles. IV. ROSAT HRI observations of NGC 6888.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have observed the stellar wind blown bubble BBobject{NGC6888} with the ROSAT HRI. A map and a catalogue of X-ray filaments is derived, the typical filament being a few 0.1pc in extent with an HRI count rate of a few 10–4s–1. We show that this filamentary structure can qualitatively be modelled as local count rate enhancements due to denser gas near evaporating cool clumps which in turn are seen in the optical and probably are produced by instabilities after the passage of the primary shock front of the expanding bubble.
