IC 1396 and the Elephant Trunk nebula

IC1396 is a young star cluster and a large emission nebula complex in the constellation Cepheus. The Elephant Trunk Nebula also lies in these complex. It is a condensation of dense gas, compressed by the surrounding ionized gas, which is barely surviving the strong ionizing radiation from a nearby massive star.
