It looks to be an Accretion/protoplanetary disk, and you're seeing the edge of the disks plane; you can actually see the faint glow of the young star in the center of the disk. If you do an image search for it, you can see images of the same disk and others like it at different angles.

Yes indeed.


Resembling an interstellar Frisbee, this is a disk of dust seen edge-on around a newborn star in the Orion nebula, located 1,500 light-years away. Because the disk is edge-on, the star is largely hidden inside, in this striking Hubble Space Telescope picture. The disk may be an embryonic planetary system in the making. Our solar system probably formed out of just such a disk 4.5 billion years ago. At 17 times the diameter of our own solar system, this disk is the largest of several recently discovered in the Orion nebula.
