This object is a dark nebula located in the constellation of Cepheus at a declination of +59 degrees. Like many dark nebula, I could not find any information on this object.

The nebula is relatively small at a size of 14 arc-minutes. I like the interesting shape of this nebula, how it is framed by a background of bright stars, and the deep depth of its darkness as it obscures all stars behind it.
