Sharpless 106, S106, is a region of recent star formation where a fairly massive star has formed, has started to destroy the material from which it's formed -- the molecular cloud around it. What we think we see now is a flow of material in two directions, in a bipolar kind of flow, out from this massive star that has quite recently formed.
