StDr object 4 / SNR G210.5+1.3 - Monoceros
Strottner-Drechsler Object 4 / SNR G210.5+1.3 is a spectrum confirmed
previously unknown supernova remnant in the constellation Monoceros
discovered by our team of Marcel Drechsler and Xavier Strottner
in August 2019.
With a diameter of 25 arcminutes, SNR G210.5+1.3 is one of the smaller
supernova remnants, which suggests a relatively large distance.
Since no central star in the form of a neutron star, or a pulsar could be
found so far, it was not possible to determine the exact distance
of SNR G210.5+1.3.
Examination of the spectra showed strong [SII] emission compared to
H-alpha with some evidence of [O I] emission. Combined with the
shock-like appearing filaments at some locations, it is fairly certain
that this is an SNR. G210 could also be quite old, since there is only faint
[O III] emission, and given its relatively small size of 25 arcminutes,
is also likely quite distant. In addition, the SNR could be behind a
considerable amount of ISM dust, since no H-beta emission is
visible in the spectra.
What is special and surprising about this supernova remnant is
the amazingly precise separation between the ionized hydrogen H-alpha
(red) and the ionized oxygen [OIII] (blue), which seems to break out of
the main structure like a bubble.
