Waterfall Nebula Spills out the Heavens



This unusual nebula, officially and rather dully named HH-222, stretches across ten light years of space. What caused its shape to form? NASA officials say, "One hypothesis is that the gas filament results from the wind from a young star impacting a nearby molecular cloud."
