The analysis is based on deep Nordic Optical Telescope R-band and Hα images, JCMT SCUBA 450 and 850um images combined with near-infrared Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) photometry and mid-infrared archival Spitzer images obtained with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC; 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, and 8um), and MIPS (24 and 70um) instruments. We identify a total of 125 sources within the 5'x5' region imaged by the IRAC. Of these sources, 87 are detected in the R-band image and 51 are detected in the 2MASS. Ori I-2 shows clear evidence of triggered star formation with four young low-luminosity pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars embedded in the globule. At least two, possibly as many as four, additional low-mass PMS objects were discovered in the field which are probably part of the young σ Orionis cluster. Among the PMS stars which have formed in the globule, MIR-54 is a young, deeply embedded Class 0/I object; MIR-51 and 52 are young Class II sources, while MIR-89 is a more evolved, heavily extincted Class II object with its apparent colors mimicking a Class 0/I object. The Class 0/I object MIR-54 coincides with a previously known IRAS source and is a strong submillimeter source. It is most likely the source for the molecular outflow and the large parsec-scale Herbig-Haro (HH) flow. However, the nearby Class II source, MIR-52, which is strong a Hα emission line star, also appears to drive an outflow approximately aligned with the outflow from MIR-54, and because of the proximity of the two outflows, either star could contribute. MIR-89 appears to excite a low-excitation HH object, HH 992, discovered for the first time in this study. Description: We have extracted IRAC and MIPS observations from the Spitzer Space Observatory archive (Program ID 30050: Star Formation in Bright Rimmed Clouds, PI: G. Fazio). The optical CCD images presented here were obtained on 2007 October 26 using the 2.56m Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) located at El Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands.

Note (1): The bright star located ∼43" away from MIR-54 in the color image is SAO 132389 (HD 37389). This star, identified as MIR-73 in Table 1, is detected even at 24um, although it is an unreddened foreground A0 star with an mV=8.3mag. The star has a radial velocity of ∼21km/s, which is very different from the radial velocity (12km/s) of Ori I-2 (Cernicharo et al. 1992A&A...261..589C). Note (2): Flag as follows: a = Outside the area mapped in 3.6 and 5.8um. b = The star is at the edge of the 3.6um map and only partially detected.
