Object name: SSTC2DJ033044.0+303247
Deep in the Perseus Dark Cloud is the cometary reflection nebula GN 03.27.6. It is lit by emission line star LkHa 326. This is also a young stellar object candidate. The cloud is thought to be about 300 parsecs distant or about 1000 light-years. With the field deep in the cloud, it has a dark and dreary appearance, about like the weather I've had trying to image it. Several other young stellar object candidates (Y*Oc) are in the field as are T Tauri stars (TT*). Both would be considered protostars still heated mostly by gravitational collapse rather than their yet to ignite nuclear furnace.
