    Description

    Lynds Dark Nebula 1235 is a cloud of interstellar dust. This type of dust can be originated from short lived massive stars or very old dying stars. This type of dusts is playing an important role in star formations. LDN objects were surveyed by astronomer Beverly Lynds using Palomar Schmidt Photographs in 1962.
