Hubble telescope spots 'cosmic caterpillar' that's six TRILLION miles long, formed  by harsh winds from some of our hottest stars 

  • The protostar is located 4,500 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus

  • It is currently collecting material from an envelope of gas surrounding it
  • The gas, however, is also being eroded by surrounding stellar radiation
