Default Great Find

I spotted this the other day. Unsure of what it was,I posted a picture and question in an insect identification group on Facebook.

I was told it is a Cecropia Moth (Hyalophora cecropia) cocoon. After doing an internet search, it looks right to me. I hope so.

An old pear tree that was planted by a previous owner--it is sending up a lot of shoots along the trunk.
