An infalling torus of molecular gas around the ultracompact H II region G28.20-0.05.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present new observations of the ultracompact H II region G28.20-0.05 in the 23 GHz continuum and the NH3(1, 1), NH3(2, 2), and NH3(3, 3) lines. To explain the complicated kinematics of the molecular gas, we propose a model consisting of two components. One component is an infalling, equatorial torus of molecular gas, whose dense central region has been ionized to form the ultracompact H II region. The second component is a larger expanding molecular shell driven by some type of wide-angle outflow or wind. We estimate that the infall component includes more than 18 Mof molecular gas. We calculate the central mass to be 79 M, probably comprising more than one star. The arrangement of the molecular material suggests a connection to the other disklike structures seen around massive young stars. The central star in this case is more massive, and the whole region may be more evolved than other similar objects such as IRAS 20126+4104, IRAS 18089-1732, G192.16-3.84, and AFGL 5142.
