The Cocoon (the red thing) is an emission nebula, that is ionised Hydrogen emitting in the red part of the spectrum. The dark lanes behind the Cocoon are absorbing gas/dust regions blocking out the light from the stars behind.

Wonder why the dark lanes only extend in one direction from the Cocoon. Is it a result of the Cocoon moving left while leaving a trail of those dark lanes? Hmm... :?

Billions and billions of stars can be seen in the background Milky Way (O.K. so he claims he never said Billions and Billions - but it sounds pure Carl to me) :D
