Resembling a playful leaping puppy chasing after a will 'o the wisp this dark nebula Barnard 93 obscures parts of the Small Sagittarius Star Cloud, M24. It is one of the first dark nebulae known, discovered in 1913 by E.E. Barnard (Barnard 1913).

This could make a fun cover for a Children’s book of space stories, well my 10 y/o thinks so anyway- he reckons he sees floating aliens in the photo 😊

Photographed in HaRGB from my backyard in Melbourne, Australia.
