Sh2-136 The Ghost of Cepheus

The Ghost of Cepheus is a reflection nebula located in Cepheus on the edge of the Cepheus Flare molecular cloud complex. There are several new stars embedded in the nebula itself which give it a brownish color. It is usually referred to as a Globule. This nebula spans about 2 light years across and lies about 1470 light years away. The star right in the middle of the nebula is a proto-star.
