IC 1396 is a vast region of hydrogen gas, dust, and star formation
in the constellation Cepheus. The interstellar
gas in this area is set aglow by the bright star near the middle of the
nebula, and the radiation from that star is eroding the surrounding gas and
dust, sculpting the fascinating shapes along the nebula.
