Fig. 4


Model sketch of the molecular region of NGC 6302 as seen from different orientations. The reference system is centred on the model, with the x-axis towards west; the y-axis along the line of sight, away from Earth; and the z-axis towards the north. Each inset shows a different perspective of the model with the camera orbiting around it, positioned at different latitudes and longitudes as conventionally defined in spherical coordinates. The scale is indicated in the “0, 0” inset, which corresponds to the view from Earth and is therefore labelled as “Front view”. The projection of the reference axes is shown in each inset to aid visualisation. The different structures are indicated by labels and arrows with the following syntax: IR, inner ring; MR, main ring; LF, lobe fragment. B and R stand for blueshifted and redshifted, respectively.
