The Extraordinary Outburst in the Massive Protostellar System NGC 6334I-MM1: Flaring of the Water Masers in a North–South Bipolar Outflow Driven by MM1B

Abstract: We compare multi-epoch sub-arcsecond VLA imaging of the 22 GHz water masers toward the massive protocluster NGC 6334I observed before and after the recent outburst of MM1B in (sub)millimeter continuum. Since the outburst, the water maser emission toward MM1 has substantially weakened. Simultaneously, the strong water masers associated with the synchrotron continuum point source CM2 have flared by a mean factor of 6.5 (to 4.2 kJy) with highly-blueshifted features (up to 70 km s −1 from LSR) becoming more promin… Show more

“…Our 3-epoch observations covered the peak of the H 2 O maser outburst and interferometric observations with JVLA confirmed the bursting masers to be located in CM2 object corresponding to the cluster A of out map (Brogan et al 2018). We were able to capture the gas motion at the shocked interface that resulted in the enhancement of the flux densities of the masers.…”

“…We searched for both propynethial and its oxygen-substituted counterpart propynal in a number of astronomically observed datasets, most of which are publicly available and all of which have previously been published elsewhere. These include ALMA observations of the high-mass star-forming region NGC 6334I (Brogan et al 2018;McGuire et al 2018aMcGuire et al , 2017, observations of the Sgr B2N high-mass star-forming region using the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) from the Prebiotic Interstellar Molecule Survey (PRIMOS) project (Neill et al 2012), as well as the datasets from the Astrochemical Surveys at IRAM (ASAI) Large Program, which was conducted with the IRAM 30 m telescope. The ASAI spectra cover a range of source types, from cold, dark clouds to class 0/1 protostars and shocked outflows, with observational details available in Lefloch et al (2018).…”

“…In many cases maser emission helps to unveil information from the interiors of dense regions. In NGC 6334I, an outburst of (sub)millimeter continuum in the protocluster MM1 was detected, along with multi-frequency maser emission from different species as water and methanol [7], [16]. Only some continuum sources are related to masers.…”
