An isolated B0.5 star has been observed, using radio techniques, in the optically obscured region ahead of a shock front which is propagating into a molecular cloud. The shock is driven chiefly by stellar winds from an OB-association. The method for detecting the star is described as well as the parameters for the region; some implications to star formation are given.
