5th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Elephant's Trunk Nebula

Although it is part of a much larger area of nebulosity, the name "Elephant's Trunk Nebula" (IC1396) comes from this small section that vaguely resembles its namesake. The large region of gas is ionized by ultraviolet rays from the bright start just to the right of the trunk.
