Abstract

We present adaptive optics (AO)-assisted near-infrared Fabry-Perot observations of both the H2 v = 1-0 5(1) line in the area surrounding the shell-like ultracompact H II region (UCH II) G5.89-0.39 and the Bry emission in the region of ionized gas. This work aims at investigating the near-IR counterpart to the widely debated massive outflow detected toward this source. We also study the connection of the outflow(s) with the possible driving source(s) to better constrain the stellar content within this UCH II region. Our data show evidence of a total of three outflows in this region, with distinct orientations and different driving sources. Two prominent bow-shock structures are identified in our H2 data in a north-south orientation. The molecular jet, likely associated with these features, is not compatible with the orientation of the outflow previously detected at high spatial resolution in SiO emission. Moreover, we propose the driving source of this jetlike structure as the O5 V star recently detected by Feldt and coworkers. However, we report the detection of a bipolar structure, separated by a dark lane, at the location of the 1.3 mm continuum source (i.e., the candidate source to power the SiO outflow). Finally, a third bipolar outflow is traced through the Brγ emission. The confirmation through CO interferometric observations of this outflow activity would therefore favor an accretion scenario for high-mass star formation.
