#kenobiwanobi: The #BrownGhoul: #vdB141 is a reflection nebula located in the #constellationCepheus. Sometimes referred to as the #ghostnebula, its awkward name is its catalog number in Sidney van den Bergh’s catalog of reflection nebulae, published in 1966. Several stars are embedded in the nebula. Their light gives it a ghoulish brown color.

thedemon-hauntedworld: Evaporating Blobs of the Carina Nebula No, they are not alive — but they are dying. The unusual blobs found in the Carina nebula, some of which are seen floating on the upper half, might best be described as evaporating. Energetic light and winds from nearby stars are breaking apart the dark dust grains that make the iconic forms opaque. Ironically the blobs, otherwise known as dark molecular clouds, frequently create in their midst the very stars that later destroy…
