The dusty emission nebula IC 410 is about 12,000 light years away and is located in the northern constellation of Auriga. The cloud of luminous gas has a diameter of more than 100 light years and is shaped by star winds and the radiation of the embedded open star cluster NGC 1893. Noteworthy are two relatively dense material currents in the 11 o'clock position, which worm away from the central region of the nebula. These cosmic tadpoles, possible tracts of star formation, are about 10 light years long.
