Description

The "Cygnus Wall":

is actually a cocoon of gas, dust and newly formed stars. This image shows that the wall is eroded and illuminated by bright young stars, and partially obscured by the dark dust they created. This wall extends for about 15 light-years and is about 1500 light-years away from us in the constellation Cygnus.
