Object name: SH2
Designation(s): SH2, 136_GN21.15.8,
Sh2-136/AKA GN 21.15.8 is often known as the "Ghost Nebula" for obvious reasons. It is also known as vdB 141. It is a reflection nebula with a Bok globule. The region to the right of the head and above the "Ghost's" left arm is LDN 1177. Galaxy Map puts its distance at about 1500 light-years but puts the error bar at +/- 500 light-years. The nebula is located in Cepheus about 1.3 degrees east of the Iris Nebula. To display the "ghost" rightside up I am posting this one with south up rather than my normal north at the top.
