This is essentially a massive pillar of dust which are being destroyed due to the presence of star deep inside the dust cloud. It will take about 100,000 years for the energetic particles of the star to destroy the surround material. Technically this object is known as a [Herbig-Haro object]. Nevermind the physics going on it is a beautiful sight to behold.
