Summary
Summary

  • Dust in a complex network coexists with ionized gas and some material has been sculpted by winds and radiation;

  • The distance to the cluster and HII region is about 5.4-6 kpc;

  • A spectacular jet and arc of molecular gas toward the extended TeV source are discovered. The arc is probably from the result of a powerful supernova explosion and the jet from a long-lived microquasar jet.
