    Description

    I just add the almost full frame image , tell me if you prefer it to the square framing ?
    I am just in terrible choice :-) between these 2 framing !!!!

    ----------
    Stars are forming in Lynds Dark Nebula (LDN) 1251. About 1,000 light-years away and drifting above the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, the dusty molecular cloud is part of a complex of dark nebulae mapped toward the Cepheus flare region.
    Across the spectrum, astronomical explorations of the obscuring interstellar clouds reveal energetic shocks and outflows associated with newborn stars, including the telltale reddish glow from scattered Herbig-Haro objects seen in this image.
    Distant background galaxies also lurk on the scene, visually buried behind the dusty expanse.
