A peanut-shaped cocoon of dust (a reflection nebula) surrounds a cluster of young, hot stars in this view from Hubble; the 'double bubble' called N30B is inside a larger nebula named DEM L 106

The royal constellation Cepheus. the shapes are cosmic dust clouds faintly visible in dimly reflected starlight. Far from your own neighborhood on planet Earth, they lurk at the edge of the Cepheus Flare molecular cloud complex some 1,200 light-years away. Over 2 light-years across the ghostly nebula known as vdB 141 or Sh2-136 is near the center of the field. The core of the dark cloud on the right is collapsing and is likely a binary star system in the early stages of formation

NGC 7129 is a reflection nebula and spent star-forming region located 3,300 light years away in the constellation Cepheus. A young open cluster is responsible for illuminating the surrounding nebula. - Image Credit: Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope / Coelum - via Jean-Baptiste Faure
