An HII region is a cloud of hot gas, heated generally by young hot stars inside it or nearby. The term 'HII' refers to the fact that the hydrogen atoms in the cloud are ionized.
UIT scheduled two observations of HII regions.
For the UIT observation of N51 in the Large Magellanic Cloud WUPPE observed
a star nearby. This will be analyzed along with observations of
other LMC stars.
