Description

Alpha Pegasus is the
mag 2.5 bright star in the southwest corner of the great square of the constellation Pegasus.
Visually, this is a rather blank area of sky. Long exposure images however, now show this area to be rich in galactic cirrus. These faint clouds of interstellar dust ride above the galactic plane and dimly reflect the Milky Way's combined starlight. They are associated with molecular clouds. The diffuse clouds are calculated to be less than a thousand light-years distant and fill this vista.
