Pillars of Creation | Photo: Hubble – NASA.

A photo of the Pillars of Creation details the clouds of molecular hydrogen through nuclear fusion reactions and dust in the Eagle Nebula in the constellation Serpens. Its structure is due to a shock front generated by a supernova. As astronomer Nicolas Flagey suggested, this could indicate that the violent blast wave would have destroyed the entire Pillars of Creation dust cloud millennia ago. The distance they have traveled to be able to capture it by the HUBBLE telescopes is 6,000 light years from Earth.
The gaseous pillars are so large that their bulges are larger than the entire solar system and their state is evaporating due to the flow of ultraviolet radiation, their structure is made up of three towers, where only the one on the left measures four light years long, inside which the hundreds of stars that are hidden by the dust that form the NGC 6611 cluster are born.
