Amazing Rotating 3D Nebula.
Pictured above is the original 2D image.  The 3D gif can be seen here, it was too big for Tumblr.Stunning emission  nebula IC 1396 mixes  glowing cosmic gas and dark dust clouds in the high and far off constellation of Cepheus . Energized by the bright, bluish central star seen here, this star forming region  sprawls across hundreds of light-years — spanning over three degrees on the sky while nearly 3,000 light-years from planet Earth. Among the intriguing dark shapes within IC 1396, the winding Elephant’s Trunk nebula lies just below center.
