Object name: VDB047
Designation(s): VDB047, GN05.36.2,
vdB 047 is a yellow-orange reflection nebula in northeastern Taurus 1.75 degrees northeast of the more famous M1. Its positional star is HD 37387 a magnitude 7.5 KIIb star. The nebula likely lies behind the star since it has pretty much the same color as the star indicating it is reflecting the light rather than scattering blue light due to the star being behind the nebula. The Sky puts the star, and thus the nebula, 3700 light-years distant.
