The astronomer Edward Barnard compiled a list of 369 dark nebulae known as the Barnard Catalogue of Dark Markings in the Sky. These nebulae were once thought to be holes in the Milky Way. After further study, they not holes but interstellar dust clouds which block the background Milky Way stars from our view. Note that, in some images below, several dark nebulae appear in the same image.
