      Description

      LBN 762, the Drunken Dragon Nebula, is a bright reflection nebula in the Constellation of Aries. Didn't understand the naming until I framed it as presented here: does resemble a head of a dragon! Beautiful, rich dusty region, with a lot of small galaxies in the background.
