2013-Jun-02, 11:20 AM
IC 410 an emission nebula about 12,000 light-years from Earth (http://coatesastrophotography.com/p840667703/h4ea2e0f2#h4ea2e0f2)in the constellation Auriga. Near the center of the nebulous region is a star cluster ( NGC 1893) and just to the bottom right of this cluster lies two structures that resemble tadpoles. These structures are made of leftover hydrogen and dust from the formation of the star cluster and the "tails" are from the solar wind coming from the stars of NGC 1893.
