Hello.

The Ghost Nebula, vdB 141, is a reflection nebula with several stars embedded in it. These stars cause the peculiar brown tone that can be seen in the photo. Cosmic dust clouds barely visible in the dim reflected starlight.

The nebula contains several Bok globules (areas where dust and gas condense forming protostars). The dark nebula to the right of vdB 141 is LDN 1435.

VdB 141 is also known as Sh2-136. It is 2 light years long and is about 1400 light years away from us.
