|A European telescope has spotted a vast tendril of cosmic dust reaching across a dense cloud in deep space. The huge, tentacle-like filament of dust is more than 10 light-years long and is anchored to the so-called Taurus molecular cloud, which is about 450 light-years from Earth in the constellation Taurus (the Bull). The cloud and filament are filled with newborn stars that are hidden from view by interstellar dust, according to an image description.|
