This paper reports the discovery and presents the results of a first analysis of the observed morphology of a candidate external irradiated circumstellar disk/jet system found in the deep core of Trumpler 14, a cluster an order of magnitude more massive than the only cluster where bona-fide proplyds have been found, the Trapezium cluster in the Orion Nebula.
