Caption: Reflection nebula, monochrome image. This is a collection of gas and dust in space, stretching across a region many light years across. The brightest part of the nebula (white) is seen as a wavy line running across centre. This is where the light from nearby stars is most strongly reflected in the direction of the observer. At top, there are dark areas that are areas of cold gas and dust that obscure the illuminated parts of the nebula.
