Van den Bergh 152 is often described as a „dusty curtain“ or „ghostly apparition“, this mysterious reflection nebula is very faintand lies about 1400 light-years away, along the edge of a large molecular cloud. Pockets of cosmic dust in the region block lightfrom background stars and scatter light from the embedded bright star (top) giving parts of the nebula a characteristic blue color.

 The emission nebula is found near the edge of an otherwise dark large molecular cloud in the southern constellation Ara, about4,000 light-years away (the picture spans about 300 light-years). Formed in that region only a few million years ago, the massiveyoung stars of the embedded Ara OB1 association sculpt the fantastic shapes and power the nebular glow with stellar winds andintense ultraviolet radiation.
