Sh2-152 is the bright nebula in the image. To its southeast is the larger but much fainter Sh2-153. The two are considered to be part of the same cloud with a mass of 105,000 suns. Some sources put it at about 15,300 light-years distant. Both parts are considered to be ionized by the unnamed O9 stars in Sh2-152.
