colorful image of a nebula that resembles a "sandworm" from the "Dune" universe

Pillars of dust and gas look like a “Dune” sandworm ready to gobble up a spiral galaxy in this recent image of CG 4, an interstellar cloud about 1,300 light-years from Earth. It is 1.5 light-years wide and eight light-years long. It’s also known as “God’s Hand” because, in some images, the pillars of gas and dust resemble the fingers of a giant hand.
