Description

 

"The Elephant's Trunk is a part of the larger nebula IC 1396. This pillar of dense star/planet forming areas is more than 20 light years long. Though it lies about 2500 light years away, if unaided human eyes were able to see it in our night sky, the Trunk would appear around the same length as a full moon. For a sense of scale, if you place our Sun next to it in this image, the Sun and all its major planets (including Earth) would fit neatly into one pixel."
